Dialoguing Across Differences

Price: 50.00

Public discourse about challenging topics has always been difficult, but with the advent of social media and echo chambers, discourse has become more politically polarized. Rather than avoiding tough conversations, this course provides educators with an opportunity to engage with both the theory and the practice of dialogue. This seminar-style class will engage in critical discussion surrounding dialogue and will also provide educators with the opportunity to practice listening and dialogue techniques. Course texts will be a mix of books, articles and films, including Amanda Ripley’s High Conflict: Why We Get Trapped and How We Get Out, Monica Guzman’s I Never Thought of it That Way, articles by academics and media theorists, and the documentary The Abortion Talks.

Full attendance is MANDATORY. Registration fees are non-refundable, so please do not sign up if you are unsure of your commitment.
