C. Daniel Myers studies how ordinary citizens and political elites talk about politics and how this, in turn, shapes their attitudes and actions. Much of his research examines the effects of political talk in deliberative mini-publics – representative groups of people brought together to learn, talk, and make recommendations about important political issues. He is also interested in the political effects of storytelling and the role that narrative plays in structuring our understanding of the political world. His research has appeared in the Journal of Politics, Political Analysis, the Journal of Theoretical Politics, the Journal of Public Deliberation, and the Oxford Handbook of Political Psychology.
