Dr. Dannagal Young on Overcoming the Political Divide


In our incredibly divisive political climate, is there any hope of unity? That’s a big question, and one that Dr. Dannagal Young is attempting to answer.


As a political and social psychologist, she studies how people understand the world and what that means for society and democracy, as she’s shared in TED Talks, major news appearances, in the classroom as a professor at the University of Delaware and in her book, Irony and Outrage: The Polarized Landscape of Rage, Fear, and Laughter in the United States.


Dr. Young joined Ten Minute Talks to share the mind-blowing research on why we believe what we believe, why it’s okay if your beliefs don’t fit in a box, tangible ways to become more open minded and have better conversations and so much more!
