Political Reversals and Renewals: Call for papers

Date
08 - 09/11/2018
Location:
University of Nottingham
Description
Recent elections and referenda have thrown up some unexpected results - outside candidates have emerged rapidly to take power, and established politicians have suffered an unexpected decline or increase in support. 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.

Mediating thought: a conference in honour of Christopher Johnson

Date
26/01/2019
Location:
King's College London
Description
Further details to be added soon.
