First Blalock lecture of 2021 is TOMORROW

Date: July 1, 2021, 7:30pm EDT
Speaker: Tina Eliassi-Rad, Northeastern University
Title: What can Complexity Science do for Democracy?
Abstract: In this talk we will discuss the following questions. What is democratic backsliding? Is democratic backsliding an indicator of instability in the democratic system? If so, which processes potentially lead to this instability? If we think of democracy as a complex system, how can complexity science help us understand and mitigate democratic backsliding? This talk is based on these two papers: K. Wiesner et al.(2018) in European Journal of Physics and T.Eliassi-Rad et al. (2020) in Humanities & Social Sciences Communication.

These lectures are free to join and open to the public! If you can't make it, a recording will be posted to the Summer Program YouTube channel.

Short Workshop Feature: African Americans' Social and Political Attitudes

Dates: August 2-6
Instructor: Darren Davis, University of Notre Dame

This workshop examines the evolution of African Americans’ social and political attitudes, and the methodology used to measure them. Evolving from a view that posited African Americans were largely homogenous and did not possess coherent opinions to a view that African Americans’ attitudes were an afterthought or serendipitous to studying Whites’ attitudes, African Americans’ attitudes are now considered more relevant and legitimate. Research in public opinion has begun to understand the complexity and methodological challenges involved in measuring African Americans’ attitudes. Through the examination of the etiology of prominent attitudinal constructs among African Americans, such as the early work on political alienation, linked-fate, political tolerance, group consciousness and linked-fate, colorism, authoritarianism, and black racial resentment, students will develop a greater awareness of the challenges involved in racial research.
