Upcoming Conference & Event Announcements

Alexander Heffner (@HeffnerA) will present a keynote address followed by a panel discussion with notable Wyoming political figures and public servants. The program will discuss the effects of divisiveness on discourse and governance and the impact of social media, fake news, and filter bubbles that polarize information intake.  What are possible prescriptions to correct this vicious cycle? How can our democratic footprint translate into prosocial instead of antisocial behavior? How can the press restore faith in our civic life and the construction of public policy?  Alexander Heffner is the host of The Open Mind (@O penMindT V), a nationally broadcast PBS public affairs interview program, and the longest running show if its kind in the history of American public television. He is coauthor of A Documentary History of the United States (Penguin, 2018).  This event will be the focus of a future Wyoming Chronicle Program, making participation in the public forum widely available to students and citizens across the state of Wyoming.
