Posner Center for International Development, Denver, CO
Program at 6:30pm - 7:45pm
Conversation and reception from 7:45pm - 8:30pm
Join us for a timely conversation, led by Diana Hess, author and Dean of the School of Education at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, about what it means to listen to others in a democracy and how to nurture this quality in young people. The need has never been greater as our communities become increasingly polarized. Hess has written extensively about democratic education and has looked closely at how classrooms grapple with the question, “How should we live together?”
Diana Hess, Ph.D. is the Dean of the School of Education at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, co-author of The Political Classroom: Evidence and Ethics in Democratic Education (2015), and author of the award-winning book, Controversy in the Classroom: The Democratic Power of Discussion (2009). This event is free and open to the public. To RSVP, please visit facinghistory.org/communityconversations.
