Understanding Polarization

For the 2020-2021 academic year, BACH has partnered with InterAct International to run a public education campaign, aimed at drawing attention to how experience gaps, information filters, and everyday habits create polarized political climates.

 

The project explores both histories of conflict and political divisions in the modern world. It offers diversity training, multi-narrative education, and conflict resolution workshops to students, educators, and community members.

Diversity Education

As part of our diversity education initiative, BACH and InterAct are bringing exposure training and facilitated discussions on contentious issues to urban, suburban, and rural communities. 

Multi-Narrative & Sensitivity Training

As part of its partnership with InterAct, BACH offers practical dispute resolution strategies to students, educators, business leaders, and community members. 

Conflict Resolution Workshops

Dr. Abu Sarah offers speaking services and runs dispute resolution workshops for universities, companies, and communities. 

She also leads experiential learning courses both domestically and abroad. She currently runs trips to conflict and post-conflict zones including the Balkans, Israel-Palestine, Iraq, Turkey, Vietnam, and Northern Ireland.

OUR STORY

Launched in January 2020, The Center for Behavioral and Cognitive History (BACH) is a collaborative digital history lab space, which strives to further the study of human behavior  by exploring how emotions, cognitions, behaviors, and concepts of morality have changed through time.
