Political Science | Parties & Media in 04 Election
Y396 | 9841 | Hershey

In this Intensive Writing seminar we will explore a variety of topics
about the 2004 campaign and election: the candidates' strategies,
media coverage of the campaign and the election, and discussions of
the implications of the results for American politics.  Each class
member will select a topic on which to do original research and will
write a series of four papers:  a research proposal, a literature
review, a presentation of research results, and an argumentative
paper about the future of party politics in the U.S.  Note that this
will not be "Crossfire";  an atmosphere of mutual respect for all
political positions will not only be encouraged but enforced.
