Bridging the Divide? Political Polarization and the Future of American Democracy
Tuesday, October 13
6:00pm - 7:15pm (EDT)
American government, like American society, is now as deeply divided as it ever has been. Is current political division and partisan polarization a sign of things to come, or can politics bring us together to pursue the common good?
Join the government and politics panel as Schar School faculty Dr, Rob McGrath, Dr. Jennifer Victor, and Washington Post Business and Economics columnist Steven Pearlstein discuss the idea of political polarization and how this may impact the future of American Democracy.
Each event includes a lively Q&A where you will have the opportunity to engage our faculty, staff, and alums. Current student leaders will also be at each session to answer questions. All events EDT via Zoom. Registration allows you to attend the sessions you like. You are welcome at any or all of the events!
