Please note: this is archived course information from 2012 for POLITICS 732.

Political campaigning has become nearly continuous between elections and insights from campaign research can illuminate trends in political communication more generally.

NB: enrolment is limited to 25 students, with selection criteria as follows: 1) admission to a postgraduate programme in Political Studies; 2) results in previous tertiary study in relevant subjects.
