Democracy and Public Discourse

September 14, 2021 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

When it comes to politics, public discourse has become a shouting match, and Americans seem to talk past one another. Is the anger and polarization a sign of failing democracy, or just the way politics has to be? What do we learn by taking a closer look at the role of history, social psychology, public opinion, and media technology in this political moment? Join our interdisciplinary faculty panel to hear how research happening at UNC can help us understand democracy and discourse—and, maybe, give us some cause for hope.

This event is co-sponsored by Carolina Public Humanities and the General Alumni Association.
