PSA Media and Politics Group Annual Conference 2018: Call for papers

Date
08 - 09/11/2018

Traditional institutions such as political parties and trade unions have experienced a revival in membership. Received wisdom on public opinion and political behaviour has been disrupted, not least assumptions about the political engagement of millenials. This conference will explore mediated communication of politics in the context of such instability and insurgency.
