Join us in a participative webinar with

Lauren Barthold

October 16, 2020
12 – 2 pm EDT


Lauren is a PhD Philosopher, who teaches philosophy at Emerson College. She is also a researcher and author of several books, including her latest book (see image). She has worked with a number of dialogue processes including Reflective Structured Dialogue (Essential Partners) and Intergroup Dialogue (Michigan State). At Healthmere, where she is a program developer, she engages marginalized youth in dialogue and the arts. She has studied how implicit bias negatively impacts our ability to engage civilly with each other across lines and how by placing dialogue before deliberation, it is possible to build the necessary relational bonds and shared understandings that can then lead to more effective political conversations.

A Participative Webinar

During the webinar your cohosts, Nancy Dixon and Linda Ellinor, will interview Lauren to provide an overview of her thinking. We will then move participants into small groups for reflection on Lauren’s interview and how her experience has meaning in our lives and work with dialogue. To close our time we will come back together with questions and reflections from our small groups.

For those of you who want to read ahead, you can buy her book here. You can also read a blog post Nancy wrote about Lauren’s work here.
