  • Karen Tracy, Chair, Department of Communication, University of Colorado, Boulder: Reasonable hostility: Its origin and evolution as a norm of conduct

Abstract: “Reasonable hostility” was initially formulated as a defensible communication conduct ideal for citizens’ participation in education governance meetings in the United States. It involves emotionally-marked expression of outrage about a wrong accompanied by small other-directed tokens of politeness.  Following an explication of the ideal’s distinctive features, I provide an example of what it looked and sounded like in school board meetings in local communities.  I then argue how reasonable hostility could be applicable as an ideal for other public situations.
