Book Launch | Counterspeech: Multidisciplinary Perspectives on Countering Dangerous Speech

Stefanie Ullmann and Marcus Tomalin of CRASSH are releasing their book, “Counterspeech: Multidisciplinary Perspectives on Countering Dangerous Speech”, which features collaborative work from Joshua Garland and our Director of Research Cathy Buerger.

This volume explores linguistic, ethical and legal aspects of counterspeech, looks at the functions and effectiveness of counterspeech from anthropological, practical and sociological perspectives and addresses the question of how we can use modern technological advances to make counterspeech a more instantaneous and efficient option to respond to harmful language online. It is a great resource for scholars and students of linguistics, philosophy of language, media and communication studies, digital humanities, natural language processing, international human rights law, anthropology and sociology, and interdisciplinary research methods.

The launch will include talks from contributors to the book and will be followed by a drinks reception.

Join us virtually, or in person on February 29th!
