How to Talk About Hot Topics on Campus fills a gap in the student services and teaching and learning literature by providing a resource that shows how to construct and carry out difficult conversations from various vantage points in the academy. It offers a theory-to-practice model of conversation for the entire college campus that will enable all constituencies to engage in productive and civil dialogue on the most difficult and controversial social, religious, political, and cultural topics.

Nash (education and social services, University of Vermont) offers a theory-to-practice model of conversation for the entire college campus that will enable all constituencies to engage in productive and civil dialogue on controversial social, religious, political, and cultural topics. Based on their experience both in and out of classroom settings, Nash and co-authors DeMethra LaSha Bradley (University of Vermont) and Arthur W. Chickering (Goddard College) give advice on teaching potentially provocative subject matter and creating an institutional culture that welcomes and nourishes difficult conversations throughout campus life. Using concrete frameworks and ground rules, they outline a process they call "moral conversation," and demonstrate how to put it into action with examples from real life.
