Digital Hate: Day 1
In German and English

Nikita Dhawan, moderated by María do Mar Castro Varela
Right-wing discourses have increased all over the world in recent years, from India to Brazil, the USA and Europe. They are gaining, mobilizing and disseminating power at an enormous rate. The contributors discuss the narratives they spread and the dynamics they develop online and offline.
The “other” has always been seen as the embodiment of bacteria, viruses and filth. The spread of corresponding hateful images and discourse has increased during the Covid-19 pandemic. It cannot be understood in isolation from digital media. In the hateful discourses, what are the familiar continuities? What elements are new? What special role do social media and digital platforms play here?
