In this teach-in Dr. Chaya Crowder will present research from her study where she uses experimental methods to explore the ways in which exposure to Instagram posts that vary the race of the protestor as well as the message on the protester’s sign influence white people’s emotional responses to political messages. Dr. Crowder makes use of data from Amazon’s Mechanical Turk to conduct sentiment analysis of open-ended survey responses to explore the role of emotions in the process of political agenda setting. She finds that when racial appeals elicit white guilt they motivate support for identifying racism as an important issue in this country, while feels of annoyance or irritation have the opposite effect.
