NCA features CAS Professor on podcast
The National Communication Association (NCA) featured one of our faculty, John Gastil, in its most recent episode of its "Communication Matters" podcast. Gastil was joined by his co-author, Katherine Knobloch, who gave a colloquium talk with John earlier this semester on the same subject, their new book, Hope for Democracy: How Citizens Can Bring Reason Back into Politics. In the introduction of the podcast, host Trevor Parry-Giles notes that in 2014, NCA invited Gastil and Knobloch to come to DC to present their research at an event on Capitol Hill organized by The Coalition for National Science Funding. At the event, they discussed research funded by the National Science Foundation on an innovative electoral reform in Oregon. The podcast looks back on a full decade of research on that subject and on democracy more generally and touches on what their research says about the state of political communication during the present pandemic.
