Please remember that the deadline for submissions for the 6th European Communication Conference in Prague (9-12 November) is 29 February
The Political Communication Section invites empirical and/or theoretical contributions on the changing nature of the relationship between citizens, political actors and the media, old and new. We welcome papers that address issues such as: the implications of mediated and mediatized politics on the quality of modern democracy; the European political communication deficit; the link between political communication and media policy, new journalistic practices, but also rising antagonistic civic communicative inputs, and populist political communication. Similarly, we invite papers on communication strategies and news management of political elites; campaign communication; citizenship and public sphere; media effects on political orientations and participation; as well as interpersonal and online political communication. Papers that take a comparative view on political communication in Europe are particularly welcome. The section aims to bring together and encourage critical and interdisciplinary approaches, while creating dialogue between a broad diversity of methodological and theoretical approaches.
