Campaigns and Elections
GOVT 232
Fall 2022
Section: 01  

This course introduces students to the style and structure of American campaigns and how they have changed over time. We also consider academic theories and controversies surrounding campaign "effects" and whether or not parties, media, campaigns, and elections function as they are supposed to according to democratic theory. Students will read, discuss, and debate classic and new scholarship in the field of political and electoral behavior. Students will also conduct research into different electoral contests in the United States at either the federal or state level.
