Announcement

Argument

The Political Communication Section invites submissions for the IAMCR conference to be held in Montreal, Canada from 12-16 July 2015.

The Political Communication Setion focuses on the media and political socialization, political campaigning, public opinion and political participation and interactions between the media and intermediary organizations such as interest groups and political parties. Studies of the uses of the media in campaigns and elections as well as in political marketing processes in government and the role the media play in local and informal forms of governance are of interest. Comparative research is encouraged and the section particularly welcomes papers that refer to the overall conference theme.

We encourage the submission of individual papers or complete panel proposals in any of the three official association languages (English, French, Spanish), but English is preferred to facilitate the international peer review process. We will arrange for presentations in English, French or Spanish. Sessions in languages other than English are possible only if the number of qualified proposals warrants it and complete sessions can be put together in the same language. Please indicate if you would be willing to make your presentation in English if we are unable to accommodate your first choice.

Guidelines submission

Individuals may submit 1 abstract (paper) per Section or Working Group as lead author, and a maximum of 2 abstracts (papers) to a single IAMCR conference in general. Presenters are expected to bring fully developed work to the conference. Prior to the conference, it is expected that a completed paper will be submitted to Section, Working Group, Session Chairs, and/or Discussants.

Abstracts should be between 250 and 500 words, and should:

  • have a clear title
  • include the name(s) of author(s) and professional title(s) (i.e. professor, postdoctoral fellow, independent researcher, graduate student, student, etc.)
  • outline the research objectives/questions/hypothesis
  • outline the theoretical framework and methodology if relevant
  • make clear the main argument proposed.

Bibliographies and author profiles are not required.

The Political Communication Research Section encourages its members to take part in their moderation and chairing sessions. In case you are interested in these activities, please contact the Chairs Christina Holtz-Bacha at christina.holtz-bacha[at]fau.de or María José Canel at mjcanel[at]ucm.es. All abstract submissions must be made centrally via the IAMCR Open Conference System (OCS).

The deadline for submission of abstracts is February 9, 2015. Please note that this deadline will not be extended. The OCS system will open on December 1, 2014,

and will close on February 9, 2015.

Early submission is strongly encouraged.
