The 2019 Travers Conference will bring together experts from around the country to assess the question of whether America is breaking apart politically.  There is a sense among some that Americans are more divided than at any time since the Civil War.  The conference will consider the nature of these divisions, how deep and genuine they really are, and how they are affecting governance.   It will include three panels: Divisions in the Public, Imagined or Real?; Prospects for Governing Amid Polarization; and Identity and Politics in a Changing America.
