I will discuss the 10-year journey from the conception of the project as a broad framework for bringing insights from cognitive psychology to political science (as a graduate student at Michigan), through data collection (as an Assistant Professor at Princeton) to its execution as a (twice-rejected) paper that was ultimately published in JOP (as a Professor at MIT). I will also talk about how I would approach the data collection process differently in the current on-line research environment.
I will talk about my ongoing research on political misinformation, focusing on (limited) successes in correcting misinformation and the ongoing challenges for democracy in the U.S. (and abroad) given the current information environment.
Come to PRESS's first event of the year for an experimental workshop with BYU Professor Dan Nielson on his upcoming work "Banking Bad: Design for a Field Experiment on Compliance with Global Standards in International Finance." The workshop will be followed by a catered Open House. Please RSVP at the following link: https://goo.gl/forms/HxDrLSEU4j0OVlKG2
