The Political Communication Working Group meets most Fridays from September to May to share research and get feedback on new ideas. We also host some terrific guest speakers. Information on past and future speakers is available through this Center for Political Studies events page. (Guest speakers are also advertised through listserves at UM.)
The PCWG also hosts the annual Michigan Symposium Series on Media and Politics, made possible with generous support from the Morgan O’Leary Symposium Fund. The first Symposium was this past February, entitled Environmental Advocacy in a Polarized World. Details on next year’s Symposium will be announced in the fall. This year’s symposium is Online and Engaged: Political News in a Digital Media Environment. Details are below.
