Wesleyan Media Project: Call for Paid Interviewers

From Aubrey Hamilton ’12:

Are you interested in social media, educational inequalities, terrorism, or perceptions of current policy issues including protests domestically and in the Middle East?

Register to participate as a paid interviewer for an opinion research project sponsored by the Wesleyan Media Project, the Quantitative Analysis Center, and Professors Fowler and Long.

If you are interested in participating please complete this form, so that we can contact you to discuss scheduling.

Interviewers will be paid $8.50/hour and will conduct interviews during the following times in APRIL:

  • Monday – Friday, and Sunday: 5:00pm to midnight
  • Saturday: 11:00am to 6pm

Money, money, money…

No, not those guys.

Yesterday, besides being the fourth of the Republican primaries, was the filing date for SuperPACs to disclose their donors (at least, those who have contributed $200 or more) to the Federal Elections Commission.

As you’ve likely heard, SuperPACs–sanctioned by the Citizens United decision and can collect an unlimited amount of money from individuals, corporations (i.e., individuals), and unions (also individuals in the eye of the law) to spend in elections as long as they do not explicitly coordinate with any particular candidate–have played an outsize role this election season, turning conventional campaigning on its head. What you probably haven’t heard is the part played by the Wesleyan Media Project in studying these groups.
