Let's Talk: Conversations About Things That Matter

Martin Buber once claimed that “all real living is meeting,” and the hope is that this series of conversations about current issues will be such a meeting place—a place not only to speak, but to listen to others as well. In four sessions, this course aims at creating, even for a brief time, a setting for reading and discussing some op-ed pieces on current issues. The aim is to engage subjects that often divide us, but that are critically important to our society and our own well being. In short, we will deal with civil issues in a civil manner that does not minimize differences or seek an easy consensus.
