Modelling Oppressive Speech/Norms & Social Meaning
Oppressive speech harms its targets. The rise of hate speech in social media and politics vividly illustrates this. This workshop will study how oppressive speech harms. Topics include: the mechanisms through which oppressive utterance causes harm; how oppressive speech shifts norms; what motivates speakers to use such speech; why others comply with the resulting harmful norms; and what needs to change to eradicate these harmful norms. We also focus on relevant aspects of social meaning such as intra-speaker variation, e.g. that oppressive language has different effects depending on who the speaker and hearer are (in-group vs. out-group, etc.).
