When hate speaks — Theoretical and empirical approaches to the interdisciplinary phenomenon of hate speech. Perspectives for Research and Action
Date: 13 – 15 May 2019
Convenors: Barbara Koch-Priewe (Bielefeld, GER), Sebastian Wachs (Potsdam, GER), Andreas Zick (Bielefeld, GER)
Since quite different disciplines have approached the currently much discussed phenomenon 'hate speech in recent years and have found their own approaches, an interdisciplinary exchange and debate on this topic appears to be necessary and overdue, in which for example questions of the definition and possibilities of the past and future theoretical and empirical processing should be discussed.
In the workshop a number of proven experts from various fields worked together on this important issue and had examined the definitions, theoretical approaches and studies that have been pursued so far. The joint question was aimed at disciplinary diagnostics and stocktaking as well as possible indicators that can be shared across disciplines. The event thus served to explore further interdisciplinary cooperation opportunities in research, prevention and intervention studies.
