CRCC to host the 8th conference of the International Journal of Press/Politics
The Centre for Research in Communication and Culture is delighted to host the eighth conference of The International Journal of Press/Politics, an interdisciplinary journal for the analysis and discussion of the role of the press and politics in a globalized world. After two years in which the conference was successfully run online, this year the conference returns to Loughborough University’s Holywell Park Conference Centre. Seventy scholars from many different countries and disciplines will be present.
The conference will open on the 21st of September with a public keynote speech by Professor Maria Repnikova (Georgia State University), titled “Advancing Research on Communication under Authoritarianism”. It will then continue on Thursday and Friday with an intense program of panels spanning across various key contemporary topics around the relationship between media and politics in an international context.
