Topic

Based on key findings of 2016 public-opinion surveys in Mexico, the United States, Colombia, and Brazil, this presentation explores the contours of political culture in each system, focusing on communication practices, institutional and social trust, perceptions of governmental performance, political participation, and political polarization.

Speaker

In his scholarship, Rojas focuses on political communication, examining in particular the deployment of new communication technologies for social mobilization in a variety of contexts; the influence of audience perceptions of media (and audience perceptions of media effects) on both public opinion and the structure of the public sphere; and the conditions under which media support democratic governance. Rojas also serves as coeditor-in-chief of the International Journal of Public Opinion Research.  Hernando Rojas PhD’05, Helen Firstbrook Franklin Professor of Journalism; director, Latin American, Caribbean, and Iberian Studies Program; director of graduate studies, School of Journalism and Mass Communication.
