In this upcoming Journal Club, we will be discussing two papers presented by graduate students surrounding the "Bridging Dialogues" theme. During this political season, we've seen many heated disagreements over challenging topics. But is it possible to create and build meaningful dialogue over these polarizing and divisive issues? If so, how? Our two graduate student presenters will provide brief summaries of their selected papers, and will lead discussions on this topics. We encourage attendees to view the papers in advance, and join us for this discussion.
