CounterBalance is the Santa Fe Institute's new applied seminar series on cyberhate, misinformation, social polarization, and counterspeech.
The intention of these meetings is two-fold. First, these seminars will provide a clearinghouse for practitioners, policy makers, and scholarly researchers to share and discuss new insights from these interdependent areas. Second, these seminars will provide an opportunity to contextualize these new insights within a broader understanding of dynamic complex adaptive systems.
These 90-minute seminars will take place virtually and will usually be on the last Wednesday of the month.
Each session will include two 15-minute presentations on recent academic work in the field, practitioner perspectives, and time for discussion among attendees.
This is the sixth seminar in the CounterBalance series, and will focus on Curbing Hate. The featured presentations will be given by Susan Benesch and Cathy Buerger from the Dangerous Speech Project.
