Description

This course will examine the role of political communication in a democratic society. We will draw on social science work at the intersection of media and politics to look at how the behaviors of journalists, politicians, and citizens influence the overall democratic process in a digital age. The course will explore the political media environment, with a specific focus on how citizens use digital media to both produce and consume political content, and to both build up and tear down democratic institutions.
