We're also looking for your opinion on changing the format. It has been suggested that we switch to more of a presentation/discussion format than a strict dialogue format. The presenter could be one of us or a guest speaker. She/He/They would give a 20 - 30 minute presentation and then there would be a group discussion. The topic hosts would still provide some advance readings so people could get up to speed before the discussion, but there would not be the same expectation to prepare as in the past. If you have an opinion on this, please let us know!
To suggest a topic, please comment below.
You can suggest as many topics as your little heart desires until Friday, December 11th.
We'll put them up for a vote and take the top 10 ideas. We'll leave two months open in case some interesting current event comes up and we need to shift things around. If not, we'll fill in with the topics that came in 11th and 12th.
For consistency and to make it easier for all of us to evaluate the topics, please follow this format:
- 1 - 2 sentence description of a possible approach to the topic (you're not tying it down - the approach will be refined or could significantly change later, but this gives people an idea of what you think it interesting about this topic).
- Why American's Like Divorce Almost as Much as We Like Marriage
- I'd like to talk about how we explain a nearly 50% failure rate in a multi-million dollar industry. Or simply explore the question: "Why divorce?!" We've been warned, we know what we're getting in to, why do we keep failing at it?
