DH Open Office Hours - The Prevalence of Backfire Effects after the Correction of Misinformation, Briony Swire-Thompson


Briony Swire-Thompson, a postdoctoral researcher at the Network Science Institute will share her work entitled, The Prevalence of Backfire Effects after the Correction of Misinformation.  Her research investigates “the prevalence of backfire effects in two datasets and 34 misconceptions”.  Swire-Thompson defines a backfire effect as “when an individual reports believing even more in the misinformation after a correction has been presented.” Her project goal is to explore the differences in participants or qualities of an item that make it likely to result in backfire effects. 

DH Open Office Hours are a great way for beginning and experienced researchers to share knowledge about how to use different tools, or to turn an idea into a solid project. We’ll also share current and completed projects, as well as our experiences with many different facets of the DH world. There will also be informal talk sessions with visiting digital scholars. This is a great opportunity to meet other students and faculty who are interested in DH and see what they’re up to. Feel free to bring your lunch!

DH Open Office Hours are held every Wednesday from 12:00 - 1:00 PM in the Digital Scholarship Commons Media Lounge, located on the second floor of Snell Library (take a right out of the stairwell, head through the glass double doors, and take an immediate left toward the orange couches).
