Take a Survey Keynote Room Apr 17, 2019 Keynote Session 08:30 AM - 08:50 AM

Americans are trapped in a partisan hyperconflict that divides politicians, communities, and even families. Drawing on my personal experience growing up in a conservative, rural community, teaching at Brown University, and working in the heart of the Washington D.C. establishment, I explore why liberals and conservatives are angry with each other, and how social media has specifically aided in these conversations. My conversations over the past 40 years with friends, colleagues, and family members form the heart of this memoir entitled Divided Politics, Divided Nation: Hyperconflict in the Trump Era. These discussions give the book a unique perspective from which to understand the heated nature of U.S. politics, how we reached our current boiling point, and remedies to bring the country back together.
