Promoting Civic Discourse in a Polarizing World

A two-year curriculum development project that would create two interdisciplinary courses integrating rhetoric, political science, and marketing.

Susquehanna University proposes to launch "Promoting Civic Discourse in a Polarized World" as part of the National Endowment for the Humanities’ (NEH) Humanities Connections program. This implementation project brings together Professors Betsy Verhoeven (Humanities: Rhetoric and Composition, a subdivision of English), Nicholas Clark (Political Science), and Emma Fleck (Marketing and Communications) to develop a cohort of two linked and team-taught courses enrolling approximately 100 students. Both courses share a project-based lab experience, which will feature student-led projects from both classes, designed to promote civic and respectful discourse to the broader public. These projects and curriculum materials will be disseminated via a public-facing website. In addition, an estimated 50 faculty members from Susquehanna (as well as other local schools) will participate in faculty development workshops that promote the pedagogical model and content of the project.
