Globally and domestically, the world yearns for a way to turn enemies into friends, to transform conflict into common ground. It can seem that politics and policies are beyond the reach of a mere citizen, but as Margaret Mead said, “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has.”
Kristin Hahn, Executive Producer of The Morning Show and 2022 Kelley School of Business Poling Chairholder, and Tim Fort, Eveleigh Professor of Business Ethics at the Kelley School and Affiliated Scholar at the Kroc Institute for International Peace at the University of Notre Dame propose that the stories we tell can change our perspective about each other and can alter our mindset, and thus, our worldview.
Fort and Hahn will present a handful of film clips, some drawn from cinematic accounts of historical events and some drawing on the power of human imagination. Whether divisions result from race, religion, culture, or even sports, there is within each of us and within most, if not all cultures, an ethic of hospitality towards strangers and an innate desire to find common ground with those with whom we are at odds; yes, even to replace fear and hatred with love.
Join us to explore the transformative power of storytelling through film.
The event will take place in the Shreve Auditorium in the Hamilton Lugar School of Global and International Studies. RSVP is required.
