New article "Pitching Gender in a Racist Tune: The Affective Publics of the #120decibel Campaign" by Shari Adlung, Prof. Margreth Lünenborg & Prof. Christoph Raetzsch!
News from Mar 25, 2021
In this article Shari Adlung, Prof. Margreth Lünenborg and Prof. Christoph Raetzsch are analyzing the changed structures, actors and modes of communication that characterize ‘dissonant public spheres.’ With the #120decibel campaign by the German Identitarian Movement in 2018, gender and migration were pitched in a racist tune, absorbing feminist concerns and positions into neo-nationalistic, misogynist and xenophobic propaganda. The article examines the case of #120decibel as an instance of ‘affective publics’ where forms of feminist protest and emancipatory hashtag activism are absorbed by anti-migration campaigners.
