Culture, Narrative and Dialogue: Constructing Civic Identity (Speaker: Professor Helen Haste)

A Centre for Teaching Thinking and Dialogue Research Seminar

Brexit and the US Election shocked us into realizing that not everyone shares the liberal, globalizing stories. How do different culturally available narratives enter dialogue? How does dialogue construct narrative? What are the educational implications? I will focus on the civic domain but this is only one example of constructing identity.
