Workshop Online harassment against academics

As academics – especially women and/or marginalized groups – it is becoming increasingly difficult to use social media as a public outreach tool. Online threats are a growing problem. What can victims of online harassment do, how can you support your colleagues, and which help can be provided? This will tackle all these questions.
