Introduktion till politisk kommunikation

Just nu undervisar jag på en tio-veckors kurs som ingår i det internationella masterprogrammet Journalism, Media and Democracy vid avdelningen för medie- och kommunikationsvetenskap vid Mittuniversitetet. Kursen heter Political Communication as a Field: Traditional and New Perspectives, och kan beskrivas som en introduktionskurs i politisk kommunikation. Eller för att citera den formella kursbeskrivningen: ”The course offers advanced studies of political communication as an academic field. The course introduces the most important political communication studies with regard to theory, methodology and empirical data. The historical development of approaches to political communication studies is introduced with a particular focus on the relations between politics, media and citizens and potential influences on these relations.”

Att välja litteratur till en kurs av den här karaktären är en intressant utmaning, men den litteraturlista som till sist fastställdes ser ut som följer:
