After our workshop had to be postponed last year due to the Covid pandemic, this year we invite to a digital event: Our research group will discuss the topic “Unequal visibility in digital spaces” with international guests on March 18 and 19, 2021.
The workshop “The online disinhibition effect revisited – disinhibition in the context of digital in/visibility” has been accepted for the three-country conference on communication science organized by the German Communication Association, the Austrian Society of Communication and the Swiss Association of Communication and Media Research. It will be conducted by Cornelia Brantner, Hanne Detel, Ines Engelmann, Katharina Lobinger, Nina Springer, Helena Stehle and Claudia Wilhelm.
From February 13 to 14, 2020, our research group met for the third time at the Bochum Center for Advanced Internet Studies (CAIS). The CAIS promoted the meeting within its funding scheme for working groups.
Due to the current situation the workshop will not take place. We will inform about a possible alternative date on this website. (Update, March 2020)
