Villa la Collina - Cadenabbia - Italy
The aim of this international conference is to discuss the current state of research, reflect on the EU elections 2019, the 2020 US presidential campaigns and several national elections in the recent past (2017-2021). Where do we stand, where does political communication research need to go, how can we overcome the challenges of data access restrictions, what can we learn from qualitative approaches? How can we trace and monitor digital manipulations across countries and over time? What are the public responses to this new phenomena?
This conference aims to bring together researchers interested in those problems: political communication proposed by the candidates and parties in the recent electoral contests and beyond, the reception and possible reaction from the citizens, and third, the consequences that such communication and responses may have on the future of the democratic public spheres.
Authors should submit a short abstract (around 500 words without bibliography), providing information on the theoretical approach, methods used and possible preliminary results.
