“NEW MEDIA AND POLITICS IN THE 2012 PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION: WHAT TO WATCH FOR ON NOVEMBER 6

A Panel Discussion Moderated by Sharon Ullman, BMC Professor of History with Guest Speakers:
 
Matthew Kerbel, Professor of Political Science, Villanova. He has written extensively about the relationship between television and politics.  His books include: Remote and Controlled: Media Politics in a Cynical Age and If It Bleeds, It Leads: An Anatomy of Television News which explore impacts of television on the political process.  InNetroots, his seventh book, Kerbel considers the possibility that Internet politics will rekindle the relationship between politicians and ordinary people that was largely lost in the television age.
 
Alexander Heffner, Journalist/writer, civic education.  Founded SCOOP08 and SCOOP44, the first ever online national student newspapers covering the 2008 presidential election and the Obama administration, and most recently blogged at SCOOP2012, a chronicle of young people’s 2012 primary campaign.
