POLISCI 24SI: Deliberative Discussions (ETHICSOC 24SI)

As America has polarized so too has Stanford. In response, Deliberative Discussions - spurred at the initiative of the ASSU Undergraduate Senate - aims to help depolarize our campus by offering the opportunity for students of different backgrounds, beliefs, and experiences to meet regularly over weekly dinners and share in a process of mutual exchange. Deliberative Discussions is unique in its recognition that six essential elements - community, conversation, continuity, inclusion, equality, and accountability - are vital for fostering meaningful dialogue and impactful respectful discourse about difficult campus and global topics. Rooted in the understanding that polarization can consist of both ideological and social distance, Deliberative Discussions strives to reduce social distance between communities at Stanford and build the sort of understanding that separates dislike from disagreement. Participants will learn about and from one another as they acquire skills and tools that will help them to transform contentious debates into meaningful exchange. Enrolled students will be split into two deliberative groups of ten students each meeting once per week for dinner over Spring Quarter, limiting total enrollment to twenty students. To apply, email Matthew Wigler (mwigler@stanford.edu) before March 26, 2019 at 5:00PST.
