GOVT 4022

Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2020-2021.

This course explores how a rapidly changing media environment and popular cultural are changing American governance and popular perceptions of democratic institutions. The course examines more than eighty years of American political history through the lens of television and film and analyzes our contemporary politics in which a presidency seemingly guided by "Reality TV" strategies - and responses to them - has blurred the line between entertainment and political discourse. The course will focus on cultural treatment of presidential elections against the backdrop of the 2020 campaign.

When Offered Fall.
