My co-instructor and I integrated the Civil Conversations series into a senior seminar at Sterling College (VT) called A Sense of Planet. Our own conversation about the series and about the wonderful book essay series, The Open Space of Democracy by Terry Tempest Williams, created a lasting framework for discussions in the course. I would look forward to a similar place in which to have conversation across the political spectrum; on my own time, I've found that Twitter works quite nicely to identify people with whom I may share one or two interests but who otherwise come from an entirely different political and spiritual perspective. Perhaps there is a way to embed such an broad conversation in this site somewhere--curated lists of Twitter users based on some array of interests. I look forward to it.
