Dornsife Dialogues: Civility in Public Discourse

Taper Hall (THH), Room 301
3501 Trousdale Parkway, Los Angeles, CA 90089

PLEASE NOTE: The first Dornsife Dialogues event was rescheduled to Feb. 24.

How has public discourse on critical topics come to be so combative, and is a return to civility possible?

Join USC Dornsife Dean Amber D. Miller and USC Jesse M. Unruh Institute of Politics Director Robert Shrum in a conversation on the tenor of public discourse, particularly in politics, and its evolution over the years. Moderated by Professor Peter Mancall, divisional dean for the humanities and social sciences, we will explore ways that the university can lead a charge toward more civil exchanges in the public square.

All students are invited to participate in this lively conversation, the first of several events this semester in the Dornsife Dialogues series.

The Dornsife Dialogues event series was launched by Dean Miller as a forum to explore complex ideas and promote civil discourse within the USC Dornsife community. Led by faculty from a range of fields within the letters, arts and sciences, the Dornsife Dialogues will examine issues of the moment with scholarly depth that affords new perspective and offers insight on the path ahead.
