Direct political communication: Exploring production, rhetoric and audience reception through the case of political advertisements.
This project will investigate how Norwegian political moving-image advertisements can shed light upon the process of direct and paid political communication between political parties and voters. My goal is to explore the entire chain of communication, paying particular attention to the use of visual and emotional argumentation throughout, both in the process of production, the advertisements themselves and in the reception of concrete groups of voters.
