[PAMLA 2023] (Call for Abstracts) Hate Inc.: Examining "Legitimized" Hate Groups and their Multimedia Strategies

Hate Inc.

Ethnic & Cultural Studies Humanities, Literature & Arts (General)

What do we make of designated hate groups, prejudiced websites, and malicious publications that go beyond the usual KKK or neo-Nazi fare? What happens when they style themselves in ways that are “rhetorically complex” or familiar to the extent of sounding legitimate, complete with institutional language, business-savvy marketing strategies, and ambiguous or veiled statements of ideology? This panel aims to interrogate such cases across a diverse range of disciplinary knowledge and methodology.
