Course Description

This course examines the basic nature of politics, communication, and the public sphere. As a unit of analysis, we will primarily focus on U.S. Presidential discourse, past and present. This semester is a special one, given that we will be observing the 2020 general election. This will require that we read, watch, and discuss quite a bit about this and other political races. Broadly stated, our goals will be analyzing, understanding, and evaluating political messages and considering their role in the formation of a public.
