Last night we held the second meeting of the New Political Communication Postgraduate Research Group. This meeting, we discussed Amy Smith's work on agenda setting in the 2015 Election.
To evolve the group, we decided to establish a podcast, to be recorded each meeting, where will discuss and analyse media and politics news and events. We will also look to set up a wider network of researchers, aimed at promoting collaboration across media and politics departments in London and the South. Lastly, we are planning, with immediate effect, a summer conference, where we hope to invite media and politics researchers to discuss recent events.
The New Political Communication Postgraduate Research Group will be putting out calls for expression of interest in a wider research network soon. We also hope to have a conference proposal on its way, too.
