This coming Tuesday November 17th at 6:15pm, Political Scientist Lindsey Cormack will be visiting Prof. Keramidas’s course Citizenship in the Digital Age Dr. Cormack will discuss how legislators reacted to the 2020 upswing in focus on the Black Lives Matter movement. Using public facing official communications, she analyzes what sorts of legislators engaged in this public topic and discuss the greater implications emerging from these patterns.
Dr. Cormack is an Assistant Professor of Politics at Stevens Institute of Technology and the Director of the Stevens Diplomacy Lab. She specializes in American politics, specifically strategic political communication, congressional politics, veterans politics, and women in politics. She is author of the book, Congress and U.S. Veterans: From the GI Bill to the VA Crisis, that includes content from nearly 20,000 e-newsletters sent from Congress members to constituents to demonstrate the differences in how members of Congress discuss versus legislate on veterans' issues. The majority of her research relies on an originally collected dataset of all official e-newsletters hosted at DCinbox.
