October 22, 2014

10:00 AM - 11:30 AMEngaging Conflict: Communication that transforms relationships, groups, and organizations

Location: 1911 Building, Room 129

Conflict is everywhere, but people often choose not to engage in conflict directly. Ironically, this may increase their level of discomfort by prolonging and escalating the situation. On the other hand, people do routinely communicate their needs and collaboratively generate solutions. People can use communication tools to construct conflict environments that are engaging; that is, inviting and productive rather than adversarial and uncomfortable. In this research colloquium, Dr. Jessica Katz Jameson of the Department of Communication will present findings from her current book project, which aims to broaden the conversation about conflict to consider how people can overcome the sense of fear and the futility it engenders.
