Keith Bybee, the Paul E. and Hon. Joanne F. Alper ’72 Judiciary Studies Professor at the College of Law and Professor of Political Science at the Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs, will participate in a roundtable discussion on his recently published book, How Civility Works (Stanford University Press). 

The roundtable, “Is Civility Dead?”, will be held on Thursday, October 13 at 11:45 AM in the Empire Lecture Hall (room 440) of Dineen Hall and is open to Syracuse University faculty, staff and students.

Also participating on the roundtable are:

Professor Charles Geyh, John F. Kimberling Professor of Law, Indiana University Mauer School of Law

Associate Professor Lauryn Gouldin, Syracuse University College of Law

Professor Jennifer Stromer-Galley, Syracuse University School of Information Studies

The United States is in the final stages of a vitriolic, conflict-ridden presidential election. And beyond the confines of the campaign trail American public life is often filled with insult and bluster.  Is civility possible today? Instead of worrying about appropriate conduct, should people simply speak their minds and have a thick skin? Join us for a discussion of prospects for mutual respect and consideration in American public life.

The roundtable is part of the College of Law’s Transformative Dialogues Series of lectures and workshops.
