Civil Discourse in an Uncivil Age/Uncivil and Unwell in America with Alexander Heffner
Dorothy Black Lecture 2021

PBS host and American author/journalist/historian Alexander Heffner discusses the effects of divisiveness on discourse, media, and governance as well as the influence of social platforms and filter bubbles, mis- and disinformation, and bigotry that polarize and undermine civil society. What are possible prescriptions to correct this cycle? How can our civic footprint translate into constructive instead of destructive behaviour? How can we help achieve integrity in the public sphere?
