Call for Papers “Activism and Collective Action in the Digital Era: Political Communication and Social Change”
Activism and Collective Action in the Digital Era: Political Communication and Social Change
November 14th, 15th and 16th 2018
Universidad Internacional Menéndez Pelayo
This conference intends to explore the role of digital communication for activist struggles from a multidisciplinary perspective: as an intersection of three disciplines, i.e. communication, sociology and political science. Its goal is to explore both the role of communication in the internal processes within different protest movements, and the news media’s role in making social and political struggles visible and (de)legitimize them. The following call for papers is articulated through six specific panels which explore complementary aspects of the outlined phenomenon.
