The New Transmission: Moving beyond hate speech, validation, and coercion

Lexi Webster delivers a linguistics research seminar, presenting findings from two specialised corpora:

Comprising over 60 million words, the dataset represents the first large-scale capture of gender-variant online communication. This new evidence offers fresh perspectives and enables critical thinking on current debates around gender, including implications for free speech, legislation and public policy

The floor will be open for a Q&A session after the talk.
