Political Incivility and Polarization in America

April 19, 2016

Does political incivility threaten American democracy? Is there a correlation between political incivility and productivity? Dr. Cornell Clayton leads a lively discussion about some of the connections and what they mean. He charts the changes over the last 30 years. He challenges assumptions about the relationship between civility and democratic participation. He explores factors that contribute to political polarization.

Thanks to funding provided by the National Endowment for the Humanities, free copies of Civility and American Democracy – co-edited by Dr. Clayton – will be available for audience members.
