MIDDLEBURY — In the final presentation of the AAUW series on polarization, Middlebury College Political Science Professor Matt Dickinson will speak on “A Polarized America?” on Tuesday, April 19, at 7 p.m., via Zoom. 

During his talk Dickinson will address the evidence regarding the widely shared assumption by journalists, politicians, and cable-news pundits that we live in a polarized country.
