Moderating the Internet

In recent years, content moderation received attention as screening of user-generated content on social media platforms. Content moderators filter explicit materials, hate speech, and misinformation and thus play an important role in the curation of online experiences. Content moderation pertains to questions on the digital political economy, online culture, as well as democracy and social justice. This course examines the implications of content moderation for how we understand media technologies, online platforms, labor relations, and politics in the digital age.
