The UCSB Political Communication Working Group brings together faculty and students from across the UCSB campus who study big questions in contemporary political communication. This interdisciplinary group meets regularly to share feedback on on-going research, discuss emerging issues in the field, and to foster collaborative projects. Our goal is to build and sustain a vibrant community of political communication scholars at UC Santa Barbara.

Our faculty and students share connections across campus, with the Department of Communication, the Department of Political Science, the Center for Information Technology and Society, the Center for Responsible Machine Learning, and the Digital Political Inequality Lab.
