Unit 1 Assignment 1 by Mary Shandley

Group A

Question: How do we replace our one-dimensional images of those who are “other” with an understanding of their multi-dimensional humanity?

Agree on: It is easier for us to dehumanize someone if all we know about them is what makes them “different” from us. Embracing others and talking to real people instead of relying on stereotypes to make assumptions is a way of bridging the gap between “us” and “them.”

Disagree on: the actual importance of identity and how we should make use of our own identities in this conversation
