Technology in Politics: What We Don’t Know and ShouldUSC Center for the Political Future
“The use of technology in politics – from social media to smart phones to targeted internet advertising – has become more sophisticated and widespread. As its prevalence expands, so does the number of questions about its use and value, and its impacts on politics and civil society. USC Center for the Political Future (CPF) Co-Directors Bob Shrum and Mike Murphy join a panel of experts to discuss the rapid changes in technology and their effects on politics including fundraising, campaigning, voting, free speech, and polarization on Tuesday, October 26. This discussion is in partnership with USC Dornsife and USC Annenberg Center for Communication Leadership and Policy.
