International symposium thematising incels: from boyhood to radicalised masculinity
Incels (involuntary celibates) is an online subculture that recently has gained widespread interest in the International, Nordic and Norwegian media. Infamous for their misogynist and anti-feminist views, the community has been linked to several acts of violence, even domestic terrorism. However, incels also represents a fairly diverse subculture that takes place across several digital fora. In this International Symposium on Incels, leading experts in the field will contribute to provide new insight into the complexities of the incel communities
