Rebellon looking for common ground in the age of fast communication

Cesar Rebellon

Cesar Rebellon, Associate Professor of Sociology, joins in the campus wide University Dialogue about finding common ground and solving complex problems. He penned a brief essay on how the speed of communication today may be amplifying our normal human tendency to interpret our social world in biased ways, making it easier to be inaccurate in our own statements and harder to hear points of view beyond our own. Find out what he says about national politics as well as issues right here on campus (pdf).
