“But I Liked Your Post?!”: Shallow Political Engagement in the Era of Transitory Communication and a Dialogue about Democratic Engagement

April 25, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 2:30 pm

Political engagement in the United States seems to be nose diving in terms of voting, but protest over politics seems to be on the increase, particularly in digital space. Building on his research and teaching, Dr. Richard Pineda, director of the Sam Donaldson Center for Communication Studies at the University of Texas at El Paso, offers insight into what has created the intersection of shallow political engagement with visceral public reaction and a growing gap in citizens’ understanding of civic responsibility and social capital.
