Call for papers: 2nd International Hellenic Conference on Political Sciences: Communicating in Politics? (HEPO2020), 3-7 May 2020, in Athens, Greece. Deadline: 16 December 2019.
You are invited to submit your proposal (abstract/ poster/workshop/ round table) to be considered for presentation at the HEPO2020 that will take place 3-7 May 2020, in Athens, Greece, organized by the Communication Institute of Greece. HEPO2020 aims to provide an opportunity for Academics, Professionals and Industry Experts from Politics, with cross-disciplinary interests, to discuss the future directives and innovations in their discipline.
The themes of this conference include, but are not limited to, ‘Politics and Mass Media’, ‘Political Rhetoric’, ‘Political Psychology’, ‘Political Socialization’, ‘Methods in Political Psychology’ and ‘Political Communication’. Organizers 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 also are investigations into communication and political socialization, public opinion formation and political participation. Additionally, organizers 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.
