Event Details

Join us as Ilana Redstone, Associate Professor of Sociology at University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign speaks to us and leads a discussion on the seemingly intractable divisions in our society today. Why are we so crippled by political polarization? What are its underlying causes, and what are some possible solutions? How can we learn to start talking and listening to each other again, rather than constantly demonizing "the other side"?
