Italian Hate Speech Corpus (IHSC)

Corpus description

This is a Twitter corpus built with the aim of representing and analyzing hate speech against some minority groups in Italy: immigrants in particular, but also Muslims and Roma.

Similar to the one provided by Wasseem and Hovy (2016), the corpus released here only contains the tweets' ID and their annotation. The content of each tweet can thus be retrieved using the Twitter APIs and querying the corresponding ID.

The corpus development forms part of the Hate Speech Monitoring program coordinated by the Computer Science Department of the University of Turin (Italy).
