This is the third event in our series on tackling the pervasive problem of digital hate. We challenge the positive framing of REF and impact to examine the conditions in which this labour is undertaken, given what we know about cultures of digital hate. This event will ask how the politics of visibility and its unequally distributed risks shape our ability to contribute to public debate through online participation.
