This is a new project that analyzes the use of emotion by politicians, and the effects of political communication on emotion. It has strong links with my work on political strategy and personality. This project is financed by the European Research Council. Here you can find a description of this project.
Work in progress
1. A paper that analyzes physiological responsiveness to different political messages about immigration, EU, climate and inequality, with Bert Bakker and Matthijs Rooduijn.
2. A paper that evaluates the link between the negativity bias and ideology, with Bert Bakker and Kevin Arceneaux.
