Program content

The aim of the project is to provide participants with methods and resources to identify, describe and analyze hate speech in the public sphere in order to neutralize it.

The organization of the event will include two distinct but complementary moments: a first part dedicated to the theoretical presentation of linguistic issues dealing with the incitement to violence and hatred, while the afternoon will be dedicated to performance and creative writing workshops.

The three main courses should be congured as follows:

  • Discours de haine (hate speech): linguistic and discursive forms and expressions of verbal violence, both implicit and explicit, invective and insult likely to cause hatred.
  • Discours de résistance(s) (speeches of resistance): linguistic resources and tools for opposition and resistance to ght on against hatred and violence (for example, testimonial, feminist, gender studies, LGBTQ+ literature, etc.)
  • Discours de (re)médiations (re-mediation speeches): linguistic and discursive strategies related to the management and dynamic process of conict resolution ("contre-discours", "discours alternatifs", "discours d'inclusions" etc.).

Participants will be asked to work on a plurality of texts and genres of discourse (literary, essay, political, media, Internet 2.0, “technographisms”, multimodal corpora...), in order to identify hate speech through language. They will also participate in workshops and recreational activities, and will attend shows and performances focused on body language and non-verbal communication.
