The thematology of this conference, includes, but not limits to ‘Politics and Mass Media’, ‘Political Rhetoric’, ‘Political Psychology’, ‘Political Socialization’, ‘Methods in Political Psychology’ and ‘Political Communication’. We invite papers that "address the interface between communication and politics, examine the use of (social) media, visuals, and rhetoric in political campaigns and the presentation, performance and personality of leaders. Cordially welcome are also investigations into communication and political socialization, public opinion formation and political participation. Additionally, we hope to see papers that address the interactions between the (social) media and intermediary organisations such as interest groups and political parties. Last but not least, we welcome scholars with an interest in political marketing and PR processes in government and the role the (social) media play in local and informal forms of governance."
