Political Experts

Campaign 2012: SLU Political Experts Lead the Way in Information and Analysis

Since America's earliest political races, academics have been among those closely following the candidates, the issues and public reaction to both local and national campaigns.

From the days when it often took weeks for news to spread to the 21st century technology that brings it to almost everyone everywhere in a split second, people want to know more about those who will govern our nation.

Three Saint Louis University professors are among those who not only have a historical perspective on the leaders and elections that have shaped our country in the past but closely follow, interpret and provide analysis on today's political scene in the classroom, at public forums and with the media.

Diana Carlin, Ph.D., associate vice president for graduate education and a professor in the department of communication, is well known for her research which focuses on political communication with an emphasis on debates, women in politics, speech writing and civic engagement. In 1992, she created the national project DebateWatch, which encourages citizens to watch presidential debates in groups, talk about them and submit reactions.

Her most recent work includes publications about Hillary Clinton's and Sarah Palin's 2008 campaigns and civil society projects in Moldova, Russia, Georgia and Afghanistan.
