STudying European Racial Hoaxes and sterEOTYPES

Funded under the “Challenge for Europe” call by Carlsberg Foundation, Volkswagen Stiftung and Compagnia San Paolo, led by University of Roma III.
The project focuses on ‘racial hoaxes’, communicative acts created to circulate information that are an allegation of a threat posed against someone’s health or safety associated to individual or a group because of race, ethnicity or religion. Aiming at understanding the social and psychological processes emerging from racial hoaxes in digital generations across three border Mediterranean European countries (Italy, Spain and France), it integrates different methodological approaches coming from psychology and computational linguistics.
