COMM 102S: Political Communication and Social Media

This course will explore how social media and mobile computing platforms affect the modern political landscape. Topics: how these technologies change the mix of news, information and campaign materials we get; structure our relationships with candidates and representatives; augment modern politicians' fundraising and campaign efforts; and make possible new forms of political organization and collective action. Possible case studies: the Obama campaign's successful use of social/mobile technology to campaign in 2008 and 2012; how constituents use social media to communicate with their representatives; and the role of social-mobile technologies in modern revolutionary movements.

COMM 107S: Engendering Compassion with Interactive Digital Media

This course will draw on research regarding behavioral, cognitive, and physiological indicators and predictors of compassion, as well as computer-mediated communication, intimate and ubiquitous computing, social networking, and multitasking to better understand how interactive digital media affects compassionate behaviors, including altruism and helping. For their final project, students will either (1) propose an experiment for future research investigating compassion in HCI, or (2) propose a design change for an extant technology to engender compassionate responses.

COMM 134: Public Participation and Public Policy (COMM 234)

Examines the role of public participation in public policy making. Around the world, policymakers seek to engage their publics. But, even though public participation is important, it is also problematic. Public meetings can become dysfunctional and turn into media spectacles instead of actually gathering the opinions of the public. The question becomes, when and how should the public be consulted in order to effectively impact public policies? There are consequences of engaging the public, and this seminar explores the methods used to engage publics around the world.
