6:30 pm - 7:45 pm
Muslims are regularly presented in a negative light in mainstream media, and as a result, the word terrorism has become almost synonymous with Islam. Similarly, racist hashtags are commonplace online. Social media channels do however offer a space to counter toxicity. Sharing the findings of their British Academy funded research project into the #StopIslam Twitter campaign, Elizabeth Poole and colleagues discuss how – and by who – anti-Muslim sentiment is being challenged online.
Speakers include:Dr Eva Giraud Lecturer in Media, Communication & Culture, Keele University Dr Elizabeth Poole Lecturer in Media Studies, Keele University Dr Ed de Quincey Senior Lecturer, Keele University
