Divided Democracy: Polarization, Hate Speech, and the Future of America

Tuesday, March 19, 2024 at 4 p.m.

Lory Student Center Theatre

Democracy faces many challenges. Our commitments to equality and free expression—fundamental to the democratic project itself—are being challenged and rethought along polarized ideological lines. Can we overcome our conflicts and restore faith in democracy?

Please join us and visiting scholars Robert Talisse, Alton Jones Professor of Philosophy at Vanderbilt University, and Seana Shiffrin, UCLA Professor of Philosophy and Pete Kameron Professor of Law and Social Justice, to discuss the promises and challenges to U.S. democracy.
