THE THEME

Critical, Constructive, and Courageous Conversations

This day-long event organized by the Nevada System of Higher Education (NSHE) will include tracks and sessions centered on Critical, Constructive, and Courageous Conversations. What conversations do we need to be having? What skills, tools, and perspectives are helpful for engaging in those conversations? What happens when we don't engage in those conversations? 

 

The event is free of charge, and all faculty, staff, and students of NSHE institutions as well as community partners are invited to attend.

On Conversations: How Emotions Impact Our Relationships

If conversations are a way for our social, linguistic species to express and explain, correct and collaborate, make sense of things and make things happen, then why are they — particularly the personal and political ones — so difficult to have?

 

In this talk, Dr. Myisha Cherry examines this question and others like it and explains how the answers we are looking for may have less to do with the topic and more to do with us. Using a framework built on her research for Failures of Forgiveness: What We Get Wrong and How to Do Better and other writing about emotions, Dr. Cherry will offer strategies for how to be the kind of person with whom people would want to have a conversation.
