Fault Lines: How Two People Can Witness the Same Event, But See it Differently

Course Description

Do you ever wonder how two people can see the same thing, yet interpret it differently? In journalism, we call these differences "fault lines." Research by sociologists, such as Albert Bandura, suggests that people are heavily influenced by their life experiences and that "to a large extent, people act on their images of reality." In the U.S. the five most common ways people define themselves are class, gender, generation, geography and race. Understanding fault lines can help facilitate difficult conversations and put differences into perspective.
