The Cline Center is pleased to announce that University of Illinois Department of Political Science doctoral students Rebeca Joan Agosto Rosa and Sarah Leffingwell will be joining us as 2019 Schroeder Fellows this summer.
Rebeca plans to use the Cline Center’s Global News Archive to analyze media portrayals of immigrants in the U.S. Her goal is to better understand the use of stereotypical and counter-stereotypical depictions and their impact on immigration-related attitudes.
Sarah’s project will focus on identifying mechanisms through which new democracies use international treaties to increase their level of domestic support. She plans to use the Global News Archive to discover how news media is used to broadcast a government's participation in treaty regimes, and how those broadcasts affect what individuals think about their government's performance.
