Elizabeth Theiss-Morse’s talk will address respect as a cardinal virtue of democratic citizenship. While most Americans say they believe in civic respect, they do not practice this respect. Giving people civic respect means engaging with the other side’s ideas, rather than simply assuming political opponents are ignorant or stereotyping them based on their vote. At its core, civic respect is about accepting pluralism.

Theiss-Morse is Willa Cather Professor in the Department of Political Science.
