Talk: Navigating “Topics to Avoid at the Dinner Table”

Headshot of Dr. Toni Bisconti

Dr. Toni Bisconti of The University of Akron will present “Navigating ‘Topics to Avoid at the Dinner Table.'”

It seems that over the last decade discussing any socially divisive topic has become almost impossible to navigate. Anything that includes words such as “diversity,” “racism,” “transgender,” “White privilege,” seem to trigger an all-out culture war. In Ohio alone, we have dealt with legislation to limit our discussion of “divisive topics” in educational settings and the changing of a baseball mascot and team name that has almost divided the NE part of the state. This talk will explore the real-life interactions we have with friends, family, and coworkers about topics we’re generally supposed to avoid. Dr. Toni Bisconti, Associate Professor of Psychology at The University of Akron, will discuss research and practice on how and when to enter these conversations—and how and when to avoid them.

This free keynote talk is open to the public and is presented as part of the 2022 Annual Meeting of the Document Academy (DOCAM). Please register for the talk via
