Abstract

The 2010s saw a rise in violence inspired by globally networked advocates of white supremacist ideology. These assailants, almost all men, almost always white, find common cause with others through the social media platforms like Facebook or YouTube, as well as on more obscure platforms, such as Gab. Although misogyny and misogynoir are key elements of this ideology, there are white women and some men of colour who champion the cause of white supremacy. How can we make sense of all this? How have tech and media helped fuel this? What can we do about it now? In this engaging talk, Jessie Daniels draws on 25 years of research to explore these questions and point us toward a new understanding of globally networked white supremacy.
