Visualizing Politics In Indonesia: The Design And Distribution Of Election Posters, Colm A. FOX 2022 Singapore Management University

Visualizing Politics In Indonesia: The Design And Distribution Of Election Posters, Colm A. Fox

Research Collection School of Social Sciences

Where studies have shown that visuals are the primary means of political communication, research continues to focus largely on text-based information. To add to our understanding of visual-political communications, this article analyses Indonesian election posters since the 1950s. Drawing on historical materials and on a content analysis of 4,000 election posters, it asks why election posters have been designed and distributed in particular ways. Findings indicate that in the past, posters used singular, though powerful, social symbols to mobilize demographic groups behind political parties. However, contemporary posters are more visually complex and more candidate-centered, making arguments as to what the …

Education Freedom Pac V. Reid, 138 Nev. Adv. Op. 47 (June 28, 2022), Servando Martinez 2022 University of Nevada, Las Vegas -- William S. Boyd School of Law

Education Freedom Pac V. Reid, 138 Nev. Adv. Op. 47 (June 28, 2022), Servando Martinez

Nevada Supreme Court Summaries

This appeal comes from a district court order enjoining an initiative petition’s circulation and the initiative’s placement on the ballot. In an opinion drafted by Justice Hardesty, the Court considered whether the district court properly denied EFP’s request to dismiss the complaint because the district court had not set the matter for a hearing within 15 days. The Court acknowledges that, under the Nevada Constitution, an initiative petition cannot require appropriations or expenditures, must adequately inform potential signatories about the petition’s goal, and cannot invade the Legislature’s primary role of proposing and enacting laws. The Court concluded that that the …

Cegavske V. Hollowood, 138 Nev. Adv. Op. 46 (June 28, 2022), Servando Martinez

Nevada Supreme Court Summaries

In an opinion drafted by Justice Stiglich, the Court considered whether initiative sponsors may withdraw a petition or whether an initiative petition’s signatories or the public acquire any rights in a petition. This appeal involves two verified initiative petitions to place questions on the ballot for the Nevada 2022 general election and the sponsors' withdrawal of the initiative petitions. Although Nevada law provides a procedure to withdraw an initiative petition and directs that “no further action may be taken on [a withdrawn] petition,”2 Secretary of State Barbara Cegavske refused to honor the withdrawals of the two petitions at issue here. …


Race And Regulation Podcast Episode 7 - Citizenship, Race, And Political Inequality, Ming Hsu Chen 2022 University of California, Hastings College of the Law

Race And Regulation Podcast Episode 7 - Citizenship, Race, And Political Inequality, Ming Hsu Chen

Penn Program on Regulation Podcasts

Formal citizenship requirements for political participation excludes not only noncitizens, but also many individuals from racial communities perpetually seen as foreigners. Ming Hsu Chen of the University of California Hastings College of Law looks at regulatory barriers, such as voter ID laws, that inhibit both racial minorities and non-citizens from participating equally in the American political process. She offers proposals for regulatory changes that would create a more equitable political order.

A New Supreme Court Case Threatens Another Body Blow To Our Democracy, Katherine A. Shaw, Leah Litman, Carolyn Shapiro

Online Publications

When the Supreme Court overruled Roe v. Wade, the justices in the majority insisted they were merely returning the issue of abortion to the democratic process. But a case the court has announced it will hear in its October term could make that democratic process a lot less democratic.


Anti-Speech Acts And The First Amendment, Richard K. Sherwin 2022 New York Law School

Anti-Speech Acts And The First Amendment, Richard K. Sherwin

Articles & Chapters

In many states today, there are laws on the books designed to protect the legitimacy and fairness of elections by barring the knowing or reckless dissemination of demonstrably false statements. Regulating this kind of deliberate deception protects the public against the erosion of First Amendment freedoms – such as the freedom to think and express one’s own thoughts and to meaningfully deliberate in an electoral process free from deliberate efforts to flood the zone of public discourse with confusion and mistrust based on deliberate and provable falsehoods. Some of these regulations, however, have been successfully challenged on First Amendment grounds. …
