In Your Face Politics: Television and the Intensification of Political Emotions

  • Starts: 4:00 pm on Thursday, October 25, 2012
Is the way Americans experience politicians and political conflict different now from how it was in the past? Drawing on a series of experimental and survey studies, Dr. Diana C. Mutz (Samuel A. Stouffer Professor of Political Science and Communication and Director of the Institute for the Study of Citizens and Politics, University of Pennsylvania) illuminates the consequences of incivility and the unique visual perspective of televised politics. Her findings have implications for understanding the strong emotions that can be aroused by contemporary politicians. Sponsored by the College of Communications. The event is completely open to the public, no RSVP required.
