Resisting Hate-Speech on the Walls: (Anti)Homophobia Graffiti in Post-Socialist Europe

Political graffiti and street art were traditionally a media of left-wing activists. Now they are increasingly becoming also the media of the right-wing extremists. This lecture focuses on one of such problematic trends: homophobic graffiti, stencils, stickers, posters etc. and immediate – spontaneous or systematic– reactions with anti-homophobic ones in Post-Socialist Eastern Europe.

This event is free and open to the public. For more information, visit gsws.pitt.edu.

Cosponsored by the Slavic Department, Sociology Department, and the Center for Russian, East European, and Eurasian Studies.
