Beyond Borders and Boundaries in Political Communication Research

New and evolving technologies pose challenges for Political Communication research. Obstacles are encountered in investigations across a range of sub-fields, including emerging technologies, social movement organisations, party political communication, and privacy and surveillance. This event asks how, and if, we can overcome these problems through new methodological approaches.

This half-day workshop, funded by MeCCSA PGN, will comprise a masterclass by political communications specialist Gord Cameron (Press Officer and Senior Researcher, Greater London Authority) and Dr Jinghan Zeng (Lecturer in International Relations, Royal Holloway, University of London), followed by presentations and discussion by PhD candidates from the New Political Communication Unit in the Department of Politics and International Relations.

Tea and coffee will be served during the event, followed by a drinks reception from 6pm. The event is free and all students and staff are invited to attend.

Where: Department of Politics and International Relations, FW101

When: Wednesday 12 October 2016, 2pm-6pm
