Online CAT project presentation: "Drawing Lines: Humor, Free Speech and Hate Speech"
DATE

LOCATION

Speaker:
Alberto Godioli (University of Groningen, PI); Vicky Breemen (Utrecht University); Andrew Bricker (Ghent University); Ana Pedrazzini (ECyC IPEHCS CONICET – Comahue National University); Tjeerd Royaards (Cartoon Movement)

 

Freedom of humor and satire is an essential component of democratic life; but at the same time, some forms of humor can be a vehicle for hateful or anti-democratic messages. How can we draw a line between free speech and hate speech, when it comes to humor? Answering these questions is particularly difficult in the case of highly condensed (and often ambiguous) forms of visual humor, such as cartoons or memes.

 

On 21 September, the members of the Constructive Advanced Thinking team Cartoons in Court, will present the project which they will be working on during the next three years in four European Institutes for Advanced Study. The project focuses on visual humor controversies from an interdisciplinary perspective, with special but not exclusive regard to cartoons. The event will start with a presentation by the team members, followed by an open Q&A.

A multidisciplinary in-house publication based on the symposium held at Helsinki Collegium for Advanced Studies on 16/6/2020.

 

This pamphlet gathers together short essays by Helsinki Collegium fellows, who draw on their research expertise to analyze different aspects of the COVID-19 crisis. It sheds a light on the power of conjoining multidisciplinary perspectives: history, literature, psychology, anthropology, linguistics, philosophy, poetry, filmmaking, mathematics and more, disciplines which sit side by side at the Collegium.
