Is Political Communication all spin and no substance? What precisely are the "Dark Arts" and who practices them? Is it possible to learn the tricks of the trade yourself? This course examines how politicians have communicated with the electorate (using both historical and contemporary examples). It is run by a former Press and Media Advisor ("spin doctor") and offers anecdotal insights into examples of varied practices - the good, the bad and the ugly!
