Bo Seo, a two-time world champion debater, will conduct a workshop on “How to Disagree Better” as part of Marquette Civic Dialogues on Monday, Dec. 4, from 5 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. in AMU 163.
In this workshop, Seo teaches participants the fundamentals that have aided him in debate. These highly practical lessons range from grasping the dispute at hand, to making effective arguments and rebuttal, to using words and gestures to deliver the point. Together, the lessons will change participants’ view of how disagreements work and will give them a range of tools they can use to better communicate with their co-workers, fellow students or team members.
The Marquette Civic Dialogues Program works to foster deliberation about the pressing issues facing our world today, prepare students to be citizens with purpose and advance scholarship on civic dialogue. Through its programming and research, Civic Dialogues encourages students to “Be the Difference” by engaging differences in political thought and lived experience.
