Lee Jussim (Rutgers, Psychology); Hrishikesh Joshi (Michigan, Philosophy)
We live in increasingly polarized times, and partisan animosity is at a high. Against this backdrop, it is tempting to sort ourselves into echo-chambers. What effects might this have on future discourse about important scientific, ethical, and policy matters? How does polarization affect the academy? Can viewpoint diversity increase the quality of research in politically relevant fields like social psychology, sociology, or political philosophy? Join us for a panel discussion with Lee Jussim, Professor of Psychology at Rutgers, and Hrishikesh Joshi, Postdoctoral Fellow at Michigan. All are welcome. Coffee and snacks will be provided!
