Frank Gilliam: Why Progressives Lose the Public Square: Strategic Communications & Americans’ Policy Preferences (Social Justice Workshop Series)

May 15 @ 5:30 pm-8:00 pm

Registration required at: http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/sjworkshops In this workshop by Dean Franklin D. Gilliam, Jr., students will come away with an understanding of the relationship between social justice frames and mass policy preferences.  Relying on research from the cognitive, policy and social sciences, students will analyze how public discourse is framed and the concomitant effects on policy thinking.  Students will work through real world examples and learn how advocates, researchers, policymakers, and elected officials utilize (or fail to utilize) framing as a tool of strategic communications to gain support for their preferred policy agendas.
