“Civil Discourse in Uncivil Times” post-event dialogue


President Amy Gutmann and the SNF Paideia Program are co-sponsoring this year’s Silfen Forum on Civil Discourse in Uncivil Times.
The panel discussion, moderated by SNF Paideia Program’s Faculty Director Michael Delli Carpini, will feature The Honorable John Ellis “Jeb” Bush, Donna Brazile, Julián Castro, Peggy Noonan, and Ashley Parker.

Penn students, faculty, alumni, and staff who are interested in a post-event discussion are invited to join us for an active dialogue.

TableTalk Penn is a student-run organization dedicated to fostering meaningful conversations on a wide range of topics between members of the Penn community that would have never otherwise met. At TableTalk Penn events, facilitators guide small discussion groups about a chosen topic by asking thought-provoking questions. TableTalk Penn is committed to allowing participants to share their unique perspectives on issues in an open forum in which students can learn with, grow from, and understand one another. TableTalk Penn hopes to continue the conversation on the Silfen Forum and offer attendees with an opportunity to discuss their own ideas.

Registration is required.

Please use your Penn email address when registering so that we can confirm your Penn affiliation.
