Roundtable will discuss how to handle political conversations during holidays
The Pell Center for International Relations and Public Policy will host another roundtable discussion Friday, Dec. 2, from 11:45 p.m. to 12:45 p.m. in O’Hare Academic Building, Room 121. A free lunch will be provided. Salve Regina staff, faculty and students are invited to participate.
Worried Uncle Ned is going to talk conspiracy theories after two glasses of red wine at the family holiday celebration? Or maybe that second cousin once removed is going to discuss both the 2020 elections and recent midterms? The holidays can be a stressful time, especially when there are landmines of touchy political topics separating family and friends on opposing sides of the red-blue divide.
Join the roundtable to discuss approaches to uncomfortable conversations about complex topics that elicit strong emotions and opinions. The discussion will elucidate the components of difficult conversations and unpack the practicality of expert advice in such situations.
The discussion will be lead by Dr. Jim Ludes, vice president for strategic initiatives at Salve Regina and the executive director of the Pell Center, and Kathryn Langford, associate director and fellow at the Pell Center.
Roundtable discussions are open to students, faculty and staff at Salve Regina. The Pell Center will provide a free lunch. Space is limited. Please RSVP to email@example.com.
