Political Communication Networks

A Networks 2021 Satellite Workshop
June 24, 08:30 AM – 12:30 PM EDT (New York) – online

The PCNet21 satellite workshop will be held virtually on June 24th, 2021.

Those interested in attending should register through the Networks2021 conference page. We welcome those from all disciplinary backgrounds.

The aim of the PCNet satellite is to provide a forum where qualitative and quantitative methods in political communication studies can interact and mutually cross-fertilize.

Network science serves as a common ground, both theoretically and methodologically, for a transdisciplinary dialogue between complementary traditions.

Call for Abstracts

Traditionally, news media served as an interface between citizens and politics, eventually influencing the political behavior together with the context and social networks embeddedness. In the information age, both politics and communication are transformed. The popularity of online social platforms  has increased the number of actors affected to spread political, commercial and other messages to a massive number of potential recipients. In this workshop we want to explore and characterize such phenomena through the lens of network theory and its applications.

Authors are encouraged to submit their contributions on their research. Specific topics of interest are:

  • Diffusion of News and Misinformation
  • Selective Exposure, Echo Chambers
  • Networked Collective Identities
  • Context collapse
  • Crowdsourced Elites
  • Digital Parties
  • Data based propaganda
  • Polarization
  • Populism

Submissions will be made by sending one A4 page abstract via EasyChair in PDF format before May 24, 2021 (Extended)
