Brief Bio:
Edward Horowitz is a native New Yorker who became interested in media growing up in the Big Apple. Although not a Midwesterner by birth, he has a fondness for this part of the country after getting both his masters and Ph.D. in mass communication at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

The students who take his classes study the impact of media through different outlets such as politics. This self-proclaimed news junkie likes to teach all of his students to be critical of all politics regardless of their own political persuasion.

Horowitz conducts research in the field of political socialization┬┐how young adults learn about politics from parents, schools, friends, and media.  He has made numerous presentations and published several book chapters on his research examining how college students experience and react to the anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks through media influences. He also studies college student┬┐s attitudes on the war in Iraq.

More recently, he and his graduate student research team have examined how young adults use Facebook and their attitudes toward President Obama, the health care debate, and tolerance.
