Culture Change Roundtable: Is Social Division All In Our Heads?

December 9, 2022
Convened by

Presentation type

New findings from the Culture Change Project show a particular mindset gaining ground in American culture—that social division is driven by the media and is largely a product of our own imaginations. This mindset leads people to conclude that our social problems can be solved by changing the way that we think and talk about polarization and toning down our focus on division. According to this way of thinking, if we are reminded less frequently of how different and divided we are, Americans will come together.
