REAL WORLD ISSUES COURSE

(De)Polarizing Dialogue

Practical strategies for defusing polarized communication and increasing impact

OVERVIEW

In the workplace, classroom and on our streets, everyday interactions increasingly provoke angry divisiveness. Red lines are drawn and redrawn between “Them” and “Us”, making civil discussion and respectful disagreements seemingly a thing of the past. This course addresses the real-life issue of divisive rhetoric and polarized encounters in Europe—whether about the pandemic and self-expression, freedom of expression versus hurtful rhetoric, or otherwise.

CONSIDERATIONS

Neuroscience is often considered a topic beyond the reach of daily practitioners, many of whom may not have a background in the hard sciences. While a general understanding of ?human biology and physiology? is helpful, and we will touch on the anatomy and chemistry involved, the core concepts we will address do not require a specialized understanding in this area.
