Civic Engagement in a Contentious Public Space
Events such as the attack on the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021, have exposed fractures in American political ideology, causing historians and political scientists to explore the competition between freedom and security. In his talk “Civic Engagement in a Contentious Public Space,” author and political science scholar Keith Gåddie, Ph.D., will examine how major political events can reveal the cause of deeper tensions and present potential solutions such as re-engagement with civic nationalism to build a constructive civil discourse.
