Emerson College communications professor Robert Hilliard will offer a course this Fall called Hate.com, which will examine how radical, right-wing groups recruit new members via the Internet.
Hate groups range from neo-Nazi alliances and anti-lesbian and gay groups to anti-abortion extremists. A federal jury awarded $170 million last year to a group of abortion providers, doctors, and clinics, arguing that creators of "The Nuremberg Files" Web site had violated federal racketeering laws and the Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances Act.
Hilliard and Boston College professor Michael Keith, co-authored a book entitled "Waves of Rancor: Tuning in the Radical Right." Hilliard intends for his class to analyze how radical hate groups target young people and how they foster hate.
Currently, more than 300 extremist Web sites exist today.
