First Monday: Discursive Openings for Difficult Classroom Conversations

Monday, December 07, 2020 - 5:15pm to 6:45pm

Zoom link will be provided when you RSVP

Discursive Openings for Difficult Classroom Conversations

Based on their research on “Reclaiming Civility: Towards Discursive Opening in Dialogue and Deliberation,” co-directors of the Civil Discourse Lab, Associate Professor of Communication Jennifer Borda and Principal Lecturer in Communication Renee Heath, are going to share their development of creating discursive openings in difficult conversations.  The first half will discuss the concept and the latter half will discuss how the concept translates into pedagogical settings.

If you plan to attend, kindly RSVP by emailing or by leaving a message at 603-862-4356.  You will then be provided with a Zoom link and password.

The Center for the Humanities usually hosts First Monday events at the Three Chimneys Inn in Durham and is currently hosting them on Zoom.  The events center around short, informal talks by faculty members, designed to give colleagues a window into their work.  We reserve time at the end for questions and conversation.
