Are We The Enemy? The Neuroscience of Conflict and Empathy

November 30, 2017

Join Dr. Emile Bruneau, Research Associate and Lecturer at the University of Pennsylvania’s Annenberg School for Communication, and Dr. Karen Ross, Assistant Professor in the Department of Conflict Resolution, Human Security, and Global Governance at UMass Boston, to explore how human cognitive habits encourage bias, separation, and conflict. Can thinking about our own and others' experiences of conflict help us create new neural pathways to support empathy and reconciliation? Learn what happens in our brains in a virtual experience like "The Enemy."

Free. No pre-registration necessary. Space is limited.
6:30 - 8:00 p.m.

This program is offered in conjunction with The Enemy, on view now.
