Let’s Talk: Finding Common Ground
Mount Mercy University – On new shows, social media, and even at the dinner table, it is easy to find people eager to speak in opposition to others’ political opinions. Sometimes these heated discussions turn words into weapons; speakers reduce their political foes to something less than fully human and the conversation becomes counterproductive. In this context, what is needed is the simple art of civil conversation with those who think differently. Join us as we explore the perceptions which create obstacles to such conversation, such as stereotyping, essentializing, objectifying, and prioritizing self before another; and will provide suggestions for navigating such obstacles in a heated political climate. Presented by Associate Professor of Communication David Klope. This event is part of Mount Mercy University's 2017 Fall Faculty Series, "Divided We Fall," which explores the state of our nation’s democracy. Join us as our faculty explore how today's biggest issues can be resolved through courage and compassion. Learn more: www.mtmercy.edu/common-ground Event held in Betty Cherry Heritage Hall
