How Americans Can Find A Way To Civility When Talking About Politics

As we move into the homestretch of the presidential election, the political rhetoric is heating up, especially in a battleground state like Wisconsin. While we can all switch the channel or turn off the TV when we have our fill of political advertising, it is not easy knowing how to handle those uncomfortable moments when we are face-to-face with someone we disagree with.

On this edition of UWM Today, we talk about how we can become more civil in our political discourse. Our guest is William Keith, a professor of English at UWM. He is the co-author of a new book called Beyond Civility: The Competing Obligations of Citizenship.
