Where misogyny hides: Exploring everyday online discussions of violence against women

28 June 2023 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm AEST


Join Hacks/Hackers Brisbane in-person at ABC South Bank or online to hear ADM+S researcher, Lucinda Nelson talk about the challenges of everyday misogyny in online discussions about gender-based violence.

This month Hacks/Hackers Brisbane is partnering with ADM+S to explore the challenges of understanding and responding to everyday misogyny in online discussions about gender-based violence.  How might we begin to better address the subtler, ‘civil’ discourses that normalise violence against women, alongside the more extreme manifestations of online misogyny?


Lucinda Nelson

Lucinda Nelson is a research student at the ADM+S Centre at QUT. Lucinda’s research explores the manifestation and spread of misogyny on social media platforms. Conceptualising misogyny as a continuum, Lucinda seeks to draw particular attention to the more ‘covert’ types of misogyny that are not always immediately apparent, but underpin and reinforce a culture of violence against women. Lucinda’s project involves a comparative analysis of responses to a gender-based violence controversy on three different social media platforms. Through this work, Lucinda aims to identify practical opportunities for legal, technical, or other intervention to combat online misogyny.
