How to Talk to Your Family at Thanksgiving: Conversations Across Ideological Divides 

Join Christopher Celaya, the Center on American Politics' postdoctoral scholar, for a presentation on how to have conversations across ideological divides in an increasingly polarized environment.

Americans are becoming increasingly polarized in political and personal ways, putting strain on both our democracy and our relationships. Christopher Celaya, whose work lies at the intersection of political psychology and political communication, will discuss the nature of this problem and then offer some solutions we can use in our everyday lives to help tame it. Key to understanding this problem is understanding how we construct identity, norms, meaning, and values. Join us for this presentation followed by an opportunity to ask questions.
