Pre-Study Considerations: Quantifying Novel Slur Formation Through Textual Media Analysis

Semester: Spring 2024


Presentation description

Research into novel slur formation suggests that periods of new or heightened tension between groups are likely to cause the formation of new slurs, consistent with theories of degeneration and contempt crystallization. Merging gender studies and computational linguistic methodologies, this study aims to lay groundwork for assessing slur formation in the digital age, and is of increasing importance in the wake of human rights crises being declared for Trans Americans.
