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 Thursday, January 22, 2015 from 7:00 to 9:00 pm we are hosting Concordia University’s University of the Streets Café for a discussion of “The Ethics of Virtual Choice: How do in-game decisions relate to real-world behaviour?” Admission is free and everyone is welcome.
