This free, open event will be a conversation about the relationship between civility and democratic participation with WSU Professor Cornell Clayton.
Parking is free.
Cornell Clayton, Director of the Thomas S. Foley Institute for Public Policy and Public Service at Washington State University, has made a study of American rudeness.
When political debate reaches a boiling point, often it’s because the nation is nearing a turning point when change has become necessary, but that change is being held back by entrenched forces.
This is the perspective that Clayton offers in his presentation, “Political Incivility and Polarization in America.”
In his presentation, Clayton compares the current period of political incivility with other flashpoints in American history to prove how incivility has served as a catalyst to move the nation forward when other means have failed.
