Anthony Magnabosco has been learning, studying, conducting, and promoting Street Epistemology for more than five years, and is considered to be one of the leading practitioners of the method. Anthony has performed more than one thousand on-camera conversations with people about all sorts of beliefs, and has uploaded hundreds of examples to his YouTube channel, where more than 20,000 subscribers are able to learn by watching his interactions. Anthony has appeared on numerous podcasts, shows, and blogs including The Atheist Experience, The Thinking Atheist podcast, Cognitive Dissonance, The Friendly Atheist Podcast and blog, and The David Pakman show to discuss and share Street Epistemology with others.
Anthony will also be offering two hands-on Street Epistemology this weekend, so try to find time to attend one of the sessions.
[Presentation] May I Change your Mind?
[Workshop] Street Epistemology Hands-On
Many people have heard of street epistemology, but few people are comfortable trying it in real world situations. This workshop will give you the education, tools, and confidence needed to help a person reflect on a deeply-held belief or claim without closing them down or making them feel defensive.
After a brief overview of Street Epistemology, a short video example, and a few on-screen scenarios to consider as a group, participants will break out into teams to role-play conversations. Participants will take the role as both Street Epistemologist and interlocutor (the person making the claim). The session will conclude with a brief analysis of the practice exchanges and information on where to learn more afterwards. Each workshop will cover the same material, so there is no need to attend both.
