Adam Seipp | Professor, History
Adam R. Seipp is a Professor of History. His research interests focus on war and social change in modern Germany. He is the author or editor of a number of books and journal articles on topics including demobilization after the First World War, the liberation of concentration camps, refugees in Europe, war in fiction, and the American occupation of Germany after the Second World War.

Anna Wolfe | Associate Professor, Communication
Anna Wolfe’s research is centrally concerned with understanding how we can disagree with each other without being violently disagreeable. In pursuit of this goal, she studies how individuals use language to form collective identities, how leaders mobilize collectivities for action, and how processes of dialogue and deliberation can build bridges between oppositional stakeholders to facilitate the achievement of shared understandings and democratic public decisions. She co-directs the Difficult Dialogue Project, which brings people together in facilitated group discussions guided by empathic listening and perspective-taking. Her award-winning co-authored book, Sex and Stigma: Stories of Everyday Life in Nevada’s Legal Brothels examined how stigma communication influences labor policies, community-organization relations, and organizing practices. She is a member of the planning team for the Aspen Conference, a community of scholars focused on developing practical theory and collaborative research in the service of addressing everyday problems of living in a pluralistic society.
