The theme for this year’s Political Studies Association Media and Politics Group conference is Political Reversals and Renewals.

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.
