What are they really talking about in campaign ads?


In an effort to assist the voting public with understanding campaign ads, a free public lecture by Dr. Robert Demski and Dr. Mark Finney, “Deciphering Campaign Ads,” will be held at noon Wednesday, Sept. 12, in McDaniel Hall room 101. Free refreshments will be served. The Adams State parking lot north of the Student Union Building has free two-hour parking throughout the day.

Demski, associate professor of psychology, and Finney, assistant professor of mass communications, are teaching an elective course this semester, “Perspectives on the 2012 Presidential Election,” which will examine how psychological dynamics and media processes contribute to presidential election outcomes. The course integrates and applies political psychology and mass communication studies to the 2012 presidential election. The noon talk is a sample lecture from this course.
