The journal Social Influence has put out a special online edition in honor of this election season featuring a selection of articles from previous issues exploring the psychological processes at work in a variety of aspects of individual and social persuasion “focusing on the many ways in which our political outlooks and decisions can be deliberately shaped.” Penn doesn’t currently subscribe to this journal but we will beginning 2013. In the meantime, you can email me if you want to get your hands on any of these articles–if my promotional link is still working I can share; if not there is always our trusty InterLibrary Loan.
