In this course, we will accomplish two things. First, we will become familiar with the logic of running a political persuasion campaign. For this purpose, we will study current research on persuasion as well as current research on campaigns. Second, each student will participate in the design of a persuasion campaign. Throughout the academic term, we will discuss how to design the campaign. In the last two weeks of the class, every student will take part in a presentation for the entire class. They will then take questions from the class about the content and strategy of the presentation.
