About this Episode

Guests Ashton Kingdon and Ashley Mattheis join Right Rising to discuss the ethical implications of studying the far-right. Along with host Augusta Dell'Omo, Ashton and Ashley walk us through the existing institutions that protect ethical research and how they fall short in safeguarding scholars studying extremism online. Ashton and Ashley explain the threats faced by researchers - particularly women, people of color, and LGBTQIA+ individuals - and how their new unit at CARR focusing on ethics aims to increase researcher safety.
