The Cline Center is pleased to announce that Political Science doctoral students HyunJoo Cho, Tolgahan Dilgin, and Kristin Bail will be joining us as 2020 Schroeder Fellows this summer.
HyunJoo will be using the Cline Center’s Global News Index and Historical Phoenix Event data to extract news sources for analysis to explore whether political leaders treat territorial issues systematically differently from non-territorial issues in order to increase political legitimacy and popular support.
Tolgahan will be using the Cline Center’s Global News Index and SPEED Civil Unrest Data to determine whether political parties tend to target strongholds for pre-election violence with the goal of maximizing their chances for winning elections.
Kristin will be using the Cline Center’s Global News Index and SPEED Civil Unrest Data to broadly investigate which features of a country’s political environment shape what people know about politics and what factors most affect the contours of international news flows.
