Iran: Back to the Axis of Evil

“US-Iran relations have been strained for decades but had begun to improve after the conclusion of a multilateral 2015 nuclear agreement. The Trump administration's decisions to quit that agreement unilaterally and to place a total embargo on Iran's oil exports have exacerbated old differences and provoked new crises that are further destabilizing one of the most conflict-ridden areas in the world. How did this happen and how can the situation change for the better?” —Barbara Slavin

Campus-Community Dialogue: Protest

Campus-Community Dialogue: Protest

  • Salt Lake Public Library Main Auditorium (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Over the past two years the Department of Political Science, the Hinckley Institute and the College of Social Behavioral Sciences at the University of Utah have held a 'Campus Community Dialogue Series'. The purpose of this unique series is to create regular opportunities for interested members of our community to engage in civil and constructive dialogue dedicated to exploring some of the key challenges facing our campus, state, country, and world. 

Our primary aim is to create a space for respectful and informed dialogue among differing perspectives dedicated to the pursuit of mutual understanding and the thoughtful consideration of practical solutions to our nation’s domestic and international challenges. Unlike debates in which speakers try to “win” in partisan competitions, the purpose of a public dialogue is to facilitate mutual understanding and a deeper appreciation for the diverse values and perspectives that inform key policy discussions. We believe that the possibilities for stimulating new ideas and increasing mutual trust are more likely to arise under conditions of respectful public dialogue. 

We are most interested in the tactics of protest, the boundaries of what we find acceptable or not and why (obviously these change depending on your perspective), the different techniques or venues of protest (virtual, boycotts, in person, nonviolent, etc.). And, specifically, considering it’s a topic for the upcoming mayoral election and was a hot-button issue this past summer, how should movements/groups protest against issues like the Inland Port.

This Fall, our Dialogue is moving 'out' into the Salt Lake Community itself. We have scheduled a dialogue session for Thursday evening, October 24th, at the Salt Lake City Library, on the topic of 'Protest'.

Funding Our Future: Utah Education

Throughout 2018 and 2019, public school teachers across the country organized to improve teacher compensation and education funding structures. Utah was no exception—with many school districts ultimately increasing educators’ salary schedules. National debate has explored the best ways to pay teachers, whether increasing school spending impacts student achievement, and whether or not to expand school vouchers for charter schools. Our panel will examine these questions through a Utah lens and discuss how best to fund our education system.

Changing minds, swaying votes, and shaping policy can come down to good communication skills. Civil Talk teaches community members how to improve their communications to make a difference on issues they care about—including how to disagree and have civil political conversations; how words, messengers, and advocacy style matter; and how to communicate with elected officials.

Whether you are interested in making an impact through policy, advocacy or candidacy - in your community, workplace or family - messaging matters. Who is your audience and how can you influence their opinions and votes? This panel discussion explores good and bad messaging, the importance of choosing influential messengers, and the two styles of advocacy, while providing real world examples to teach you how to improve your messaging and achieve better outcomes.

Beholden: The Politics and Potential of Debt

Neal A. Maxwell Lecture in Political Theory and Contemporary Politics

  • Kennan Ferguson, University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee

Beholden asks why debt is always seen as the antithesis of freedom, and what is lost in privileging the latter over the former.  Freedom, Ferguson argues, is an adolescent aspiration, a pipe dream of pure will and unadulterated self-containment. But why, then, do freedom and its conceptual fellow-travelers, such as liberation, resistance, self-determination, emancipation, and autonomy, reflexively register as "good"? In presuming their unquestioned desirability, political thinkers automatically denigrate those forms of being which fall under the category of indebtedness: bond, promise, association, troth, and other interpersonal connections.
