Dealing with Alternate Universes and Views of Reality in Politics
Current mass media provides us with the picture of political adversaries living in alternate universes with different views of reality. From social media to cable TV, we find ourselves in information silos of our own construction, getting news and views from like-minded sources. This can make it hard for us to grapple with the complexities of the political world we live in today. Participants will bring their values and beliefs to facilitate their understanding of alternative political realities and share each other’s critical insights, to help them become more informed citizen. Tom Murray has a Ph.D. in Communications from U-M, is Emeritus Professor of Communication at EMU, and has led OLLI study groups. No class October 10.
