This panel will discuss and explore cross-cutting perspectives about interpersonal relationships and the interdependent forces that bind humans. The conversation will consider the range of human relations from implicit biases that inhibit inter-personal communication to spontaneous intimate relations with strangers. Panelists will discuss from both empirical and theoretical perspectives how human relations impact people at different levels, from their individual health and behavior to group dynamics to levels of systemic relations.
