Is Civil Discourse in Politics Possible?

The Calvin community is welcome to join three panelists on the timely topic “Is Civil Discourse in Politics Possible?” on Thursday, October 4, at 4 p.m. in the Commons Lecture Hall. Refreshment provided.

Members of an alumni-faculty study group on civility and politics will share insights and resources about this issue in the midst of a highly charged election season. This civil discourse group was funded jointly by the Calvin Center for Christian Scholarship and the Calvin Alumni Association. Some of the group’s work can be found at http://www.calvin.edu/alumni/perspectives/civility/ including video clips of interviews with the group members.

The October 4 panelists are Doug Koopman, Calvin political scientist; Neil Carlson, from the Center for Social Research; and alumnus Mark Lemoine ‘93, director of government affairs, Spectrum Health.
