The Certainty Trap

February 15, 2024

By focusing more on changing how we think and focusing less on changing other people's minds, we may just be able to make our democracy work. In this series of discussions, discover how certainty limits our understanding of the world and one another by creating sloppy thinking and breeding contempt. Learn how to make difficult conversations more constructive by thinking more openly and communicating more precisely. Join a multi-generational group of community members, university students, and University Y staff for five, 90-minute discussions over dinner.  

We'll meet from 6:00-7:30P on March 4th, March 19th, April 1st, April 15th, and April 29th at the University YMCA. Space in this free program is limited to 30 people and registration is required. Led and facilitated by Prof. Ilana Redstone, UIUC Department of Sociology. You can find out more about her work at www.ilanaredstone.com. This program is sponsored by the University YMCA.
