“Online misogyny” is a new multiyear interdisciplinary project in the For Digital Dignity research program. It investigates the role of social media in facilitating gender based disinformation and misogynistic attacks against politically active women in Germany, India and Brazil. Sahana Udupa will be co-steering the project together with the TUM School of Social Sciences and partnering factcheckers. The project (2022-2026) is funded by the Bavarian Research Institute for Digital Transformation (BIDT) and will be jointly carried out by a team of ethnographers, sociologists and computer scientists at the University of Munich (LMU) and the Technical University of Munich (TUM).
