Event description
Practicing Democracy: Civility and Outrage

About this Event

The Professor of Practice Series at Pacific School of Religion is a cross-disciplinary series that brings global leaders on Artificial Intelligence, Business & Social Responsibility, and Arts and Race into transformative conversation and features a wide variety of events, including lectures, exhibitions, performances, and panel discussions.

Is there a dearth of civility in our political sphere? Does outrage have a place in democratic conversations? This course will grapple with these seeming opposites by discussing the increasing polarization of contemporary society and explore the impacts of civility and outrage as alternative ways to address these problems.

Each session will allow the audience to debate present day issues, challenges, and conflicts affecting the way people have a say in their own future such as political representation, labor conditions, environment, privacy and security etc. within modern democracies from a variety of theoretical perspectives.

March 11: Civility and Its Discontents: Which Way from Here?

March 21: Corporations as Social Change Agents: A Brave New World? (9AM-12PM)

April 1: Smart Communications: Does the Loudest Voice Always Win the Day?

April 8: An Increasingly Divided Body Politic: Can We Put the Pieces Back Together Again?
