CANBERRA: Troll Hunting Book Launch

Hosted By: National Library of Australia

Theatre, Lower Ground 1, National Library of Australia, Parkes Pl W, Canberra ACT 2600 | 12 Feb 2019 06:30 PM

Join us in celebrating the launch of Ginger Gorman's incredible new book Troll Hunting.

Ginger Gorman is a fearless and multi award-winning social justice journalist. She has an innate ability to connect and communicate with some of the most interesting and marginalised people in our community and works hard to translate those untold stories into powerful and insightful journalism.

In 2013, Journalist Ginger Gorman was trolled online and received scores of hateful tweets, including a death threat. Over the next five years Ginger spoke to psychologists, trolling victims, law enforcement, academics and the trolls themselves, embedding herself into their online communities and their psyches in ways she had never anticipated.

Troll Hunting is an utterly compelling read and an important window into not just the mindset and motivation of trolls, but the history of this kind of aberrant behaviour. 

Journalist Ginger Gorman, in conversation with the ABC’s Chris Uhlmann, leads us through the mindset and motivation of online trolls, exploring what makes them tick and who they really are.
