Monthly meeting series LUCAS Modern & Contemporary cluster: Histories, Affects, and Effects of Online Vitriol
- Thursday 18 February 2021
- Online (Microsoft Teams)
This third meeting of the meeting Modern and Contemporary research cluster of the Leiden University Centre for the Arts in Societywill be dedicated to the theme of Histories, Affects, and Effects of Online Vitriol.
In November 2020, Amsterdam University Press published the edited collection Violence and Trolling on Social Media: History, Affect, and Effects of Online Vitriol, edited by Sara Polak and Daniel Trottier, and including contributions by LUCAS M&C cluster members Frans-Willem Korsten and Gerlov van Engelenhoven.

On this occasion we would like to broaden the conversation about vitriol and its fluid dynamics online and offline, as a phenomenon that increasingly shapes politics and culture in ways that are both novel and have long historical roots.
The meeting will explore links that can be made between the topic and other LUCAS research projects (as if we were brainstorming for a second volume, so to speak). Three colleagues, Kirsty Rolfe, Carmen van den Bergh, and Aris Politopoulos will kick off the discussion by offering comments or raising questions that link their research (on 17th-century public discourse, Mussolini, and online game culture) to the book. Everyone else is very welcome to join the discussion and connect it to their own work. We hope ideas may arise for articles or papers we might actually want to (co-)author!
