I’ll be presenting on American Nations: The History of the Eleven Rival Regional Cultures of North America at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst on October 31, starting at about 10 am.
It’s one of the keynote addresses at the university’s “Combating Polarization” symposium. It’s free and open to the public, but you do need to pre-register via the links here.
My co-presenters include Sara Konrath of Indiana University, who studies empathy and altruism, and UMass Amherst’s own Jamila Lysicott, assistant professor of social justice education. The idea is to better understand what polarizes communities — a public university campus, for instance — and how people can constructively interact in such an environment.
