Title: The Web Will Be Decentralized! (For real, this time), But What Does That Mean, And How Can We Tell?
Speaker:
Dr. Jean-Philippe Vergne, UCL School of Management, UK
Date:
May 5, 2022 @ 11:00am (EST)

ABSTRACT: This workshop challenges the implicit assumption that decision-making and information are linked - i.e. that agents who make decisions have, by design, access to relevant information, and vice versa. Dr. Jean-Philippe Vergne will then differentiate between distributed and decentralized organization, as well as propose new measures - actionable in digital platform settings - to capture these two dimensions.

Title: Everybody Hurts: Investigating Emotion Regulation as a Cause and Solution to Prejudice
Speaker: Dr. Jordan Mansell, NEST, Western University; Professor Amanda Friesen, Political Science, Western University; Professor Mathieu Turgeon, Political Science, Western University
Date: January 21, 2022 @ 2:00pm (EST)

ABSTRACT: There is an established relationship between emotion and prejudice. However, this relationship is complicated by the fact that humans are not passive emitters of emotion, but can act upon and regulate their emotional states. Given the pervasiveness of anti-prejudice norms, an explanatory gap exists between how experiencing negative emotion toward outgroups leads to prejudicial attitudes. One explanation is that the development of prejudice is a consequence of individuals’ failure to appropriately regulate their affective responses to outgroup members. Research on emotional regulation suggests that expressive suppression, the constraint of emotional expressions, in response to outgroup members could be responsible.
