A Divided America?

Date

Feb 23 2023

Time

5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

Journalists, politicians, and cable-news pundits tell us that America is a deeply divided nation.  But is it? This talk examines the evidence regarding the widely shared assumption that we live in a polarized country.  What do we mean by polarization?  Who, if anyone, is polarized, and on what issues?  How did we get here, and what can be done about it?

PLEASE NOTE – new date! (previous date Feb. 21)
