Higher education has absorbed one of the lessons of Graff and Birkenstein’s They Say/I Say: the key move in academic argumentation is from what others have previously said to one’s own contribution.

The result is too often a mode of argument in which the ideas of our predecessors, our colleagues and even our primary sources are treated as mere fodder for disagreement. What might we build collectively - as a field; as a profession - if we understood argumentation as a process of thinking with rather than against others’ arguments?

This talk explores the challenges and the potential for modeling a form of discourse sorely lacking in the contemporary public sphere.
