EPISODE 39: DESIGN PRINCIPLES OF A GOOD CONVERSATION
“If the American experiment is to succeed, we must improve the quality of our political, academic and civic conversations.” — Dr. Emily Chamlee-Wright. On Episode 39 of “The Future of Democracy,” Dr. Chamlee-Wright, president and CEO of the Institute for Humane Studies at George Mason University, sits down with Knight’s John Sands to discuss changing our conversations in the community. They’ll explore how to help Americans bridge divides and heal wounds created by our country’s structural barriers, and unpack how Americans can govern ourselves as equal citizens.
