Event Description:

“Dialogue and the Difficult Questions: Can we understand each other around political differences?”

At work, at school, or whenever we turn on the computer, we seem to be barraged by a host of difficult questions, and the sense that daily life is permeated by deep disagreement with others, even in our families and communities. 

Various forms of media seem to heighten the sense “of talking past” each other and that it is close to impossible to understand one another across these cultural, social, religious and political differences.

 Is it possible to dialogue even when our conversations turn to difficult questions and areas of strong disagreement?

 How can we maintain our principles and vision of what is good for our communities and for our society in the midst of these difficult and painful tensions?  How can we build open, loving, trusting relationships, even when we disagree?

 This workshop aims to explore these questions and to help students to develop and refine the listening and dialogue skills that can foster constructive, respectful and open communication even across profound difference.

 Speakers:

Amy Uelmen, Lecturer, Georgetown University Law Center
Charlie Camosy, Fordham Associate Professor, Department of Theology
