Hot Politics Lab

Hot Politics Lab

The Hot Politics Lab is an interdisciplinary research group combining experiments, physiological measurement and automated text analysis to analyze the role of emotions, personality and language in politics. We analyze topics such as populism, persuasion and party strategies.

We currently host one virtual meeting each Friday where we speak to one or more experts from political psychology to discuss all things related to our Lab topics, and make them available via this podcast.
