    October 19, 2017, 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM @ Large Activity Room

    Two nonprofits, Critical Connections and the Karuna Center for Peacebuilding, invite you to a discussion on polarization with Columbia professor Dr. Peter Coleman. Americans are more divided than at any time since the Civil War and conventional approaches to reconciliation seem inadequate. What can ordinary citizens do to bridge seemingly intractable political divides in our country? Professor Peter Coleman, who has devoted his career to analyzing protracted conflict, will join us to share the lessons that his interdisciplinary research can shed on our “political polar vortex” and also describe opportunities that can emerge from the current political crisis. Co-sponsors: Critical Connections and Karuna Center for Peacebuilding. This event is made possible through the generous funding of Mass Humanities, whose grants inspire considered thought, conversations, and action.
