Beyond Pride and Prejudice: Can Insights from Relationship Psychology Improve Our Politics?
The divide between American liberals and conservatives is growing wider and more vitriolic, and it's not clear how these trends might reverse. This presentation adopts the vantage point of relationship psychology to offer new insight into the causes and nature of our surging polarization. It considers the overlap between (1) the key elements of Americans' political relationship today and (2) the most toxic marriage that relationship psychologists could concoct. Leveraging insights from moral psychology and cognitive science, the presentation suggests that inculcating a struggling family metaphor can mitigate the worst elements of our partisan divide, and, ultimately, help to cultivate a more constructive politics.

SSRI~ Workshop: Program Evaluation
This workshop offers an overview of program evaluation, or the systematic investigation of the merit, worth, or significance of a program. Topics covered will include: when and why to conduct evaluation; types of evaluations; key aspects of an evaluation, including logic model development, data sources and data collection, analysis and reporting, and guiding resultant programmatic change; and tips for feasibly and effectively implementing evaluation at a program or organization. This workshop focuses on evaluation from the perspective of programs or organizations and will be of particular interest to people working in such settings who are looking to learn more about evaluation, but it is also relevant to undergraduate students, graduate students, faculty, or other researchers who are interested in evaluation and applied research. Registration required; please click the "more event information" button below to access the registration form.
CDVS Workshop: Research Reproducibility: Tips and Tools
In response to a growing focus on the importance of reproducibility, replication, and transparency in the research endeavor, scholars are adapting their practices and learning new skills and tools. This workshop will introduce some foundational strategies that can increase the reproducibility of your work. You will also learn about specific tools and protocols that you might use within your research workflows including the TIER protocol, git and GitHub, and online containerization tools such as Binder and Code Ocean.
Data Dialogue: Barak Sober (Duke)
My research ranges between analysis of high dimensional data from a geometrical perspective and the application of mathematical and statistical methods in digital humanities (in the context of Archaeology and Art History).
CDVS Workshop: Research Data Management 201: How and where to publish your data
Data management practices help researchers take care of their data throughout the entire research process from the planning phase to the end of a project when data might be shared or "published" within a repository. Building upon the foundational concepts covered in the Data Management 101 courses offered this year, this workshop will provide hands-on experience where participants will learn strategies for how to prepare data for publishing by "curating" an example dataset and identifying common data issues. Participants will also learn about the overall role of repositories within the data sharing landscape and learn strategies for locating and assessing repositories.
