2016 Symposium- September 28th & 29th
Polarization: A forum on extreme thought in our environment, society, and technology.
We live in an era in which ideologies often seem diametrically opposed and common ground is frequently elusive. Whether such apparent polarization is real or imagined is certainly open to debate, but our impression of polarization undoubtedly influences our mindsets and social discourse on scales ranging from the individual to the global. Environmental, social, and technological problems are especially liable to be viewed through a black-and-white lens, and the American political scene and social media are just two potential facilitators of such perspectives.
We have identified four subthemes as core focal areas:
- The Positives and Negatives of Polarization
- The Emergence and Dissolution of Radical Movements
- Polarization within Academia
- An Open Showcase for Extreme and/or Radical Ideas
This event is FREE and OPEN to the public thanks to our sponsors. This event is September 28th - 29th and organized by Purdue University’s Ecological Sciences and Engineering Interdisciplinary Graduate Program. To get involved, please contact email@example.com. We look forward to seeing you there!
