Deliberation And Dialogue In A Quiet Place, Roger A. Lohmann Nov 2018

Deliberation And Dialogue In A Quiet Place, Roger A. Lohmann

Faculty Scholarship

This article recounts the story of the rise and fall of the public deliberation and sustained dialogue mission of the Nova Institute in the (now defunct) School of Applied Social Sciences of West Virginia University. The concept of political quiescence in Appalachia is used to characterize some of the resistance to public discussion that was encountered. The article appears in a volume of essays around the theme of university-community relations in Central Europe and published in Budapest, Hungary.
