Coffee and Conversations: Women’s Rights, Democratic Attitudes, and Information in the 2022 Midterm Elections  (back)
How do individuals’ information ecologies influence their views on women’s reproductive rights, same sex marriage opinions, and democratic attitudes? This talk will focus on how the ways people use news sources, social media, and conversations with others are associated with their opinions and actions on a variety of important issues that are shaping the 2022 midterm elections. Using panel survey data gathered by the Center for Communication and Civic Renewal at UW-Madison from Wisconsin, Georgia, Michigan, Ohio, Minnesota, Pennsylvania, and North Carolina over the past four years, attendees will come to learn how homogeneous and heterogeneous information diets affect what people know, what they want, and what they do.

Learning Objectives:
• Understand the communication ecology in Wisconsin and similar “swing states”
• Relate people’s information diets to the opinions they have on critical public issues
• Learn strategies to tame social media’s (mis)information tide
