Description

Not too long ago, trolls only existed in folklore as supernatural beings described as grotesque and ill-mannered and often dwelling under bridges in fairy tales. However, trolls are no longer a creature of myth that is scarcely seen or heard from; instead, they have abandoned bridges for a new home – the Internet. This talk will introduce the audience to the Internet Troll – a subculture of the Internet that is “turning the web into a cesspool of aggression and violence” (Stein, 2016).
