MCASJ — Only Offered Virtually: Mathematical and Computational Approaches to Social Justice
08 Mar 2021 - 10 Mar 2021 • Online, United States
Organizer:
ICERM
Abstract:
Social justice refers to fair relations between individuals and society, including issues such as equity, diversity, and inclusion. While the study of social justice historically has been rooted in the social sciences and humanities, mathematics and computation provide complementary and powerful approaches. Tools from dynamical systems, network science, applied topology, stochastic processes, data mining, and more have been applied to issues ranging from voting to hate speech. This Hot Topics workshop seeks to promote new areas of research on quantitative approaches to social justice. We will bring together mathematical and computational scientists who are equipped with tools and methodologies that could be applied to social justice, as well as those who already have expertise with social justice work. We aim to showcase research at the intersection of mathematics, computing, and social justice, as well as build community among scientists interested in quantitative social justice research. This workshop is fully funded by a Simons Foundation Targeted Grant to Institutes.
