The partisan divide in the US has widened to a chasm. Legislators vote along party lines and rarely cross the aisle. Political polarization is personal, too—and it is making us miserable. Surveys show that Americans have become more fearful and hateful of supporters of the opposing political party and imagine that they hold much more extreme views than they actually do.
Dr. Peter T. Coleman, professor of psychology and education at Columbia University and an expert in conflict resolution, will discussed how we can loosen the grip of this polarization and work on our most pressing problems.
