During the talk, the spe­akers pre­sen­ted empi­ri­cal results from seve­ral popu­la­tion-based stu­dies on expe­rien­ces of onli­ne haras­sment and hate spe­ech in Nor­way. The experts focu­sed on how the results dif­fer within dif­fe­rent popu­la­tion gro­ups, with a par­ti­cu­lar empha­sis on the gen­der dimen­sion of onli­ne haras­sment betwe­en vic­tim and per­pe­tra­tor. In addi­tion, they exa­mi­ned whe­ther women expe­rien­ce onli­ne haras­sment more – and in dif­fe­rent ways – than men. The pre­sen­ta­tion also focu­sed on the poten­tial of dif­fe­rent types of onli­ne haras­sment to silen­ce the­ir vic­tims and whe­ther the­re are gen­der pat­terns within the phe­no­me­non of onli­ne haras­sment as a silen­cing mechanism.

A series of Polish-language meetings during which researchers and guest speakers look at issues related to digital transformation, new technologies, innovation and digital research methods.

The aim of the "Digitisation under the closer look of science" seminars is to build cooperation between academia, the public sector and business. Scientists share their research findings and have the opportunity to discuss them with experts. The results of their work are available on the DELab UW website.
