  "description": "<p>Contemporary theories of social cohesion emphasize the&nbsp;importance of people accepting and appreciating differences across<br>\nsocial groups. The SPICE project aims to promote social cohesion&nbsp;by researching and developing tools and methods to support citizen&nbsp;curation for groups at risk of exclusion. We define citizen curation&nbsp;as a process in which citizens can interpret cultural objects in order&nbsp;to build representations of their own social group. Other groups can&nbsp;then engage with those interpretations in order to appreciate their&nbsp;perspective. In this position paper we discuss how research into&nbsp;empathy can be used to motivate the design of recommender&nbsp;systems that support people in looking beyond their own group and&nbsp;engaging constructively with alternative perspectives.<br>\n&nbsp;</p>",
