Trygve Throntveit: Civil Discourse in Polarizing Times

This week's conversation takes us off the familiar path into a fascinating conversation with Dr. Trygve Throntveit, an academic historian who is doing some fascinating work on the revival of civic life. This conversation is immensely important for church leaders, who lead one of America's most important spaces in which social capital is created: local congregations.

He is Director of Strategic Partnership, Minnesota Humanities Center (mnhum.org) and a Global Fellow for History and Public Policy, Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars | wilsoncenter.org

In addition to authoring several important volumes, Trygve also appears on other print and online platforms, including The New York Times, Time, and The Daily Beast.
