Machine Politics/Politics of the Machine: New Technology in Political Communication Research and Teaching

August 29, 2007

On Wednesday, Aug. 29, the Department co-hosted a one-day event, "Machine Politics/Politics of the Machine: New Technology in Political Communication Research and Teaching," at UIC. The event, an official pre-conference short course of the American Political Science Association convention, included guided tours of the UIC Electronic Visualization Laboratory (which developed the Virtual Reality Cave) and the brain imaging facilities at the UIC Medical Center. Sixty-seven participants joined in small, interactive sessions on topics such as digital content analysis, psycho-physiological testing, games and wiki technology, and web graphing led by technologically hip scholars of all ages. A closing reception served famous Chicago food and beverages. Andrew Rojecki and Kevin Barnhurst, Department of Communication, and Doris Graber, Department of Political Science, were the event organizers. 8.29.2007
