Politics & Polls #31: The Cognitive Science of ‘Trumpology’

Feb 21, 2017

Donald Trump’s presidency has evoked strong emotional and psychological responses from both the public and the president himself, raising issues not often brought forth in public policy and governance.

Many, including members of the media, are trying to make sense of this complicated web of anger, passion, rationality and irrationality. Among those reporters is Jesse Singal of New York Magazine, who is bringing the social sciences into the news amid an often-heated environment.

In this episode of Politics & Polls, professors Julian Zelizer and Sam Wang interview Singal and discuss, among other topics, his recent articles on fear among conservatives and how the “contact hypothesis” — when members from different groups interact — can diminish prejudice and hatred.

If implemented, what would an immigration ban and a border wall accomplish?

In this episode, professors Julian Zelizer and Sam Wang take a deep dive into immigration and border control with professor Doug Massey, one of the country’s leading experts in this field. Podcast Here.

On the other hand, the country has front-row seats to The Donald Trump Show, a gripping drama filled with unexpected twists and turns.

Are we seeing the birth cries of an authoritarian regime? Or is it the gang that couldn’t shoot straight? Professors Julian Zelizer and Sam Wang debate this and more in episode #29. Podcast Here.

Students Selected for 2017 Scholars in the Nation’s Service Initiative

Feb 6, 2017

Ten students at Princeton University have been selected to the 2017 cohort of the Scholars in the Nation’s Service Initiative (SINSI).

Established in 2006, SINSI is designed to encourage, support and prepare the nation’s top students to pursue careers in the U.S. federal government, in both international and domestic agencies. Through rigorous academic training integrated with work experience, the goal of the highly competitive scholarship program is to provide students with the language and workplace skills needed to succeed in the public policy arena.

This year, for the first time, two groups of students have been admitted to the program. Seniors and first-year Master in Public Affairs students were able to apply for the graduate scholarship, with four graduate scholars admitted from the applicant pool. In addition, all freshmen, sophomores and juniors were invited to apply for new SINSI internships; six students were admitted. Prior to the 2017 cohort, a total of five students were selected annually for SINSI during their junior year. Full Story Here.

Princeton President Christopher L. Eisgruber and 47 other American college and university presidents today sent a letter to President Trump urging him to “rectify or rescind the recent executive order closing our country’s borders to immigrants and others from seven majority-Muslim countries and to refugees from throughout the world.” “If left in place,” the letter says, “the order threatens both American higher education and the defining principles of our country.”

The letter was initially drafted by Eisgruber and University of Pennsylvania President Amy Gutmann.
