About the Series: Conversations aims to bring students of disparate beliefs to the realization that it is crucial for the future functioning of our society that we learn to agree to disagree. It periodically feels like society is fraying along its seams, threatening to rend and unleash pandemonium. How did we get here? What can we do?  Conversations aims to understand these questions through the lens of engaged speakers, discourse, and fresh dialogue.
