Dr. Robb Willer: How to Have Better Political Conversations or: Ending this Zombie Apocalypse
Dr. Robb Willer of the Polarization and Social Change Lab at Stanford University has been working on understanding the moral underpinnings of this accelerating anger, and his research shows everyone is speaking different languages. This conversation makes Robb, a move buff, think of zombie apocalypse movies and wonder if everyone is acting like “foot soldiers in the army of the undead” in political conversations. Join Dr. Willer for highly-relatable, user-friendly, and scientifically-grounded advice on how to improve the quality of political conversations and possibly ditch a few zombies along the way. Learn more about Dr. Willer and facilitator Kristen Hansen of the Civic Health Project. Attendance is free but registration is required.
This program is part of the multi-year series presented by Florida Humanities in partnership with The Village Square: “UNUM: Democracy Reignited”. This series explores the past, present and future of the American idea.
Date/time: September 15 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
