From 2014 to 2016, the Atwater Library and Computer Centre is conducting an important project funded by Status of Women Canada aimed at preventing and eliminating cyberviolence against girls and young women.
Cyberviolence (e.g. cyberbullying, Internet luring and cyberstalking) is a complex problem that requires a nuanced and multi-pronged approach. There is a pressing need to involve girls and young women in discussion with the wider community to define the problem, break down the institutional barriers that support it, and devise strategies to combat and eliminate it. That’s what we will do through this project.
On January 22, 2015 we hosted Concordia University’s University of the Streets Café for a lively discussion on the moral implications of video games. The guest speaker was Mia Consalvo, Concordia Professor and Canada Research Chair in Game Studies and Design.
