In un mondo caratterizzato dalla crescente sovrapposizione fra politica e comunicazione, in cui le democrazie stanno sperimentando profondi cambiamenti e affrontando innovazioni impegnative, l'interesse verso la comunicazione politica è fortemente cresciuto a livello globale.

Per una conoscenza profonda e comprensiva delle dinamiche e delle complessità della politica nell’era globale sono sempre più necessarie teorie, metodologie e strumenti di analisi che considerino le sfide concettuali ed epistemologiche generate dalle innovazioni tecnologiche e, più in generale, dagli sviluppi dei sistemi mediali e dei flussi di comunicazione, e dall’ascesa della cosiddetta “pop-democrazia”. È quindi necessario acquisire una migliore comprensione non solo delle teorie sulla politica e sulla comunicazione, ma anche delle relazioni sistemiche innestate in queste prospettive teoriche e metodologiche.

Incoraggiamo l’invio di contributi che considerino le idee di crisi e di democrazia pop per riflettere sulle sfide dei media e della ricerca sulla comunicazione politica.  I temi possibili (ma non esclusivi) sono:

  • Le relazioni fra media e politica e le loro peculiarità nell’ambito della democrazia pop.
  • Il ruolo dei media e della cultura in relazione alla democrazia, alla fiducia politica e alla sfera pubblica.
  • L’analisi dell’influenza dei mass media e dei social media sulle rivoluzioni ideologiche e politiche in corso.
  • Le professioni mediali e del giornalismo in rapporto all’emergenza della democrazia pop.
  • L’impatto delle emergenti culture mediali, delle tecnologie e dell’economia sulla struttura e i conflitti politici e geo-politici.
  • Il ruolo della politica e del Sistema dei media nella generazione delle fake news e delle narrazioni distopiche.
  • Le relazioni fra social media, distopia e post-verità.

Sebbene il tema principale del convegno sia “Comunicare e fare politica nella democrazia pop”, l’Associazione Italiana di Comunicazione Politica ha scelto di adottare una policy inclusiva e aperta. Per questo motivo riteniamo benvenuti i paper riguardanti qualunque aspetto delle relazioni fra media e politica, così come i lavori di studentesse/studenti di dottorato e giovani ricercatrici e ricercatori.

Le proposte di paper devono includere: nome, affiliazione con indirizzo, e indirizzo email del/dei proponente/i, un titolo e un abstract che non superi le 250 parole.

 

Termine per l’invio delle proposte: 31 Agosto 2017 a convegno@compol.it.

Notificazione di accettazione: 15 Ottobre 2017

I paper completi dovranno essere inviati entro il 30 Novembre 2017 a convegno@compol.it.

COMUNICARE E FARE POLITICA NELLA DEMOCRAZIA POP

In a world characterized by the growing conflation of politics and communication, where democracies are experimenting deep changes and facing challenging innovations, the interest towards political communication is globally growing. The implication on the paradigms and the scientific research agenda, as well as on the various disciplines, have been far-reaching. Always more, a deep and comprehensive knowledge of the dynamics and complexities of politics in the global age requires theories, methodologies, and tools of analysis which consider the epistemological and conceptual challenges generated by technological innovations and, more generally, by the developments of media systems and communication flows and by the rising of the so-called “pop-democracy”. Therefore, it is necessary to gain a better grasp not only of the theories on politics and communication, but also of the rooted systemic relationships on such theoretical and methodological perspectives.

We would encourage contributors to use the idea of crisis and pop democracy to reflect on challenges facing media and political communication research. These include (but are not limited to):

  • The relationships between media and politics and their peculiarities in the frame of the pop-democracy.
  • The roles of media and culture in relation to democracy, political trust and the public sphere.
  • Mass media and social media influences upon ongoing ideological and political revolutions.
  • The work of media and journalism in relation to the rising of the pop-democracy.
  • The impacts of emergent media cultures, technologies and economies on political/geopolitical structures and conflicts.
  • The role of politics and of the media system in generating fake news and dystopic story-tellings.
  • The relationships between social media, dystopia and post-truth.

While the main theme of this conference is “Communication and politics in the pop-democracy”, the Italian Association for Political Communication operates an open and inclusive policy, and papers dealing with any aspect of media and politics are welcomed, as are papers from PhD students and early career researchers.

Proposals for papers should include the following: author’s/authors’ name, institutional affiliation and address, and email address, together with a paper title and abstract of not more than 250 words.

Proposals should be sent by 31 August 2017 to convegno@compol.it

Notification of abstract acceptance: 15 October 2017

Full papers must be  sent? by 30 November 2017 to convegno@compol.it

How to write an abstract for AssoComPol Conferences

 

Call For Abstract

Study the Call For Paper (CFP) carefully to see if your work fits: make sure that whatever you are planning to submit to the conference fits within the specifics of the CFP.

Read the CFP accurately for identifying key information. In particular, find the word limit for your abstract and take note of the abstract submission deadline: you have to respect these key requirements.

Finally, do not forget to submit your abstract within the deadline mentioned in the call by e-mailing it to convegno@compol.it.

  1. Abstract proposal’s Must Haves

An abstract proposal consists of a title, author list, the abstract text and 3 keywords.

Note that the literature references should not be included.

  1. Abstract title: be short, be informative!

A good abstract title is short, specific, representative and informative. The title should summarize your abstract without going into excessive details. Describe the topic clearly, including, for example, the country and issue of the research.

A good title helps the reviewers categorize your abstract, and if accepted, it may help conference delegates find your session.

  1. Author list: do not forget your co-authors!

There is no limit to the number of co-authors per abstract, although we recommend the use of a Study Group Name for abstracts with a high number of co-authors. 

A person can be listed as a co-author if he/she meets all the following criteria:

  1. made substantial contributions to concept and design, acquisition of data, or analysis and interpretation of data;
  2. drafted the abstract or revised it for intellectual content,
  3. approved the final version to be submitted.
  1. Abstract Text: Tips and tricks

You have few lines to convince the conference organisers that your work is interesting, that it makes a fresh contribution to scholarship, and that your argument stands up. In order to fulfil this objective, organise your abstract in the following section:

  1. What the problem is and why people should care: Introduce the context of your study, including the particular issue or question your study responds to. Use this section to set up the context of your study and demonstrate that your question or issue is interesting and worth answering.
  2. How do you assess the problem: Indicate the purpose and objective of your research, and eventually the hypotheses that you have tested.
  3. Which method do you follow: Outline your project, explain the theoretical or practical techniques you employed, describe the data you used (e.g. study population, study period, data collection process) and the methods of analysis followed in order to answer the questions you have outlined in the previous section. If your paper is an argument, remember to establish the steps you go through to get to the final point.
  4. What are your results: present as clearly and in as much detail as possible the findings / outcome of your study. Please summarize any specific results.
  5. How does your work affect the discipline (and why people should listen to you): explain the significance of your findings / outcomes, discuss briefly the future implications of the results. In this section you need to convince the reader that your research is significant and that you deserve the time to present it.

Pay attention to include all this information by respecting the word limits! Ignoring the word limit makes it look as if you don’t have any respect for the conference organisers and the guidelines they’ve set, and that’s not a good impression to make. At the same time, use the all the words allowed! Do not write an abstract much shorter than what you can: it won’t stand up well against other abstracts that are using all the words at their disposal to make a convincing argument.

  1. Ongoing research? Submit or not submit, that is the question

Abstracts are intended to present scientific studies, research, programs, policies, etc. highlighting both the methods or description and results or recommendations. If you are describing a study that is still in the planning stage, it would not be suitable for an abstract submission, unless the method that you will use is, for instance, of particular scientific interest. However, if your study is currently ongoing and you only have preliminary data, but it seems relevant or significant, please submit the abstract.

  1. Last but not least: the selection procedure

All submitted abstracts will go through a blind peer-review process carried out by an international review committee. Each abstract will be reviewed by at least two reviewers. The Scientific Committee makes the final selection of abstracts to be included in the conference program.
