When it comes to navigating our deepening ideological divide in America, what if we’re not so much the hero fighting the forces of evil—instead we’re accidentally acting just a little too much like “foot soldiers in the army of the undead,” wonders our special digital guest, Dr. Robb Willer. Robb’s been working on understanding the moral underpinnings of this accelerating anger—and his research shows that we’re speaking different languages.
We hope you’ll join Dr. Willer, professor of psychology and sociology at Stanford University and Director of the Polarization and Social Change Lab (and movie buff), for highly-relatable, user-friendly and scientifically-grounded advice on how we might improve the quality of our political conversations—and possibly ditch a few zombies along the way. Kristin Hansen, Executive Director of Civic Health Project (and one of our favorite civic superheroes) will facilitate the conversation.
This important programming is offered in partnership with Florida Humanities as a part of our multi-year series “UNUM: Democracy Reignited.”
