Center for Media at Risk Symposium: Image-Based Abuse | Annenberg

December 2, 2021 @ 5:00 pm - December 3, 2021 @ 4:00 pm

Image-based abuse is a public health crisis that silences marginalized groups and degrades public discourse. Ranging across the COVID-19 pandemic, political campaigns and social network reform, image-based abuse finds its way into nearly every pressing public issue today. This symposium will identify patterning in its occurrence, strategize research agendas for its clarification and develop policy recommendations and best practices for its resistance and prevention. Organized by the Center for Media at Risk at Penn’s Annenberg School for Communication in partnership with the Cyber Civil Rights Initiative, it will take place on Friday, December 3, 2021, with a keynote event occurring the evening of Thursday, December 2. Its objective is to provide a space for researchers, policymakers and victim-activists from different geographical contexts to meet, share findings and develop collaborative agendas. The symposium will also include a digital self-care workshop that will provide tailored advice for safely researching digital abuse.
