Two clearly articulated points of view are featured here as Arlie Hochschild, author of Strangers In Their Own Land and a sociology professor emerita at UC Berkeley, joins conservative commentator Steven Hayward, a senior resident scholar at the Institute of Governmental Studies, to analyze the ongoing divide in American politics that was exposed so dramatically in the 2016 election. They also offer ideas on how to create a more civil society.

This panel was sponsored by the Center on Civility & Democratic Engagement at the Goldman School of Public Policy and the Berkeley Forum at UC Berkeley.
