Hande Eslen-Ziya Professor of Sociology at the University of Stavanger and Honorary Research Associate at the Gender Justice, Health and Human Development, Durban University of Technology. She recently co-edited Populism and Science in Europe (2022, Palgrave Macmillan with A. Giorgi) which provides a systematic and comparative analysis of the intersections of populism and science in Europe, from the perspective of political sociology. At the moment she is working on academics facing trolling and online harassment in Europe, focusing on academics’ coping strategies. The objective of this research is to explore online harassment addressing academics and find ways to increase scholars’ resilience by gathering best practices and unsuccessful experiences and drafting tentative guidelines to start dealing with this issue. This research is funded by the Center for Advanced Internet Studies (CAIS).
