Course detail: OSH125 - Understanding Civic Divide: Reframing Conversations about Governance, Democracy and Political Conflict
This course focuses on the socio-cultural and regional dynamics of communities in conflict throughout history in the United States. Participants have the opportunities to 1) reference pertinent local historical and national events that shaped obscure places and the people who lived in these places; 2) identify regional and local values and attitudes that have persisted and may explain current actions by key individuals in roles; and 3) weigh choices and consequences, wrestle with momentous decisions, and voice their own values and positions in a deliberative response to current outcomes.
