New technology has precipitously reduced the costs of voter engagement, district interaction, and labor. This has upset the participatory and representative equilibria which have to this day evolved at a leisurely rate. In this course, we study how a reduction in the costs of collective action by way of digital transformation and artificial intelligence has changed the ways citizens interact with their political institutions.


(New!) Upper level course for college juniors, seniors, and graduate students.
