There are various ways in which you can stay up to date with what we're doing. The choice is yours.

The New Political Communication Unit website

The old school approach. Basic information about who we are and what we do, with links out to other individuals and sites. There's also our blog and news entries, and details of our recent PhD student completions, research projects and past and forthcoming talks. This is the content hub. If you don't use Facebook or Twitter, you can visit the website periodically to see what's going on. If you like RSS, you may subscribe to our various RSS feeds in your news reader of choice.


The New Political Communication Unit on Twitter

We are on Twitter. This, too, features links to blog posts and other news from the main website. If you find yourself using Twitter a lot more than Facebook, RSS feeds and plain old websites, following us is a great way of getting an easy-to-manage stream of content. You can choose whether to click through to the items depending on the short preview of the title in each tweet.
