Hate is being reinvented. Over the last two decades, online platforms have been used to repackage racist, sexist and xenophobic ideologies into new sociotechnical forms. Digital hate is ancient but novel, deploying the Internet to boost its allure and broaden its appeal. To understand the logic of hate, Luke Munn investigates four objects: 8chan, the cesspool of the Internet, QAnon, the popular meta-conspiracy, Parler, a social media site, and Gab, the »platform for the people.« Drawing together powerful human stories with insights from media studies, psychology, political science, and race and cultural studies, he portrays how digital hate infiltrates hearts and minds.
Luke Munn is a media studies scholar based in Tamaki Makaurau, Aotearoa New Zealand. His wide-ranging work on digital cultures spans from data infrastructures in Asia to platform labor and far-right radicalisation. Additionally to being author of three books, he has been featured in highly regarded journals such as »Cultural Politics«, »Big Data & Society«, and »New Media & Society« as well as popular forums like the Guardian, the Los Angeles Times, and the Washington Post. His work combines diverse digital methods with critical analysis that draws on media, race, and cultural studies.
