CIVIC CULTURE AND CONTENTIOUS POLITICS (CCCP)

CCCP bridges scholarship from various disciplines, particularly communications, political science and sociology, to investigate the fluid and evolving relationship between mass media and civic and political life. Recent efforts focus on the role of mediated and networked communication in highly polarized political environments such as the deeply contested efforts to recall Gov. Scott Walker and the 2016 presidential election. Faculty Leaders: Katherine Cramer, Lew Friedland, Dhavan Shah, Mike Wagner and Chris Wells
