Call for Papers: Third annual International Journal of Press/Politics
Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism, University of Oxford
Wednesday September 28-Friday September 30 2017
September 27-29 2017, the Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism
at the University of Oxford will host the third annual International
Journal of Press/Politics conference, focused on academic research on
the relation between media and political processes around the world.
A selection of the best full papers presented at the conference will be
published in the journal after peer review. The deadline for submission
of abstracts is March 31 2017. Attendees will be notified of acceptance
by April 28 2017.
Professor Natalie Stroud from the University of Texas at Austin will
deliver a keynote lecture on “Engaging Newsrooms in the Digital Age.”
The conference brings together scholars doing internationally-oriented
or comparative research on the intersection between news media and
politics around the world. It aims to provide a forum for academics from
a wide range of different disciplines and countries to discuss the
theoretical, methodological, and substantial challenges and
opportunities for research in this area. It is open to work from
political science, political communication, journalism studies, media
and communications research and many other fields.
Examples of relevant topics include the political implications of
current changes in the media, the relative importance of new forms of
digital media for engaging with news and politics, studies of the role
of entertainment and popular culture in how people follow current
affairs, studies of relations between political actors and journalists,
research on political communication beyond the electoral context
(including of government, interest groups, and social movements), all
with a particular interest in studies that focus on parts of the world
that are under-researched in the international English language academic
literature, develop comparative approaches, or represent substantial
theoretical or methodological advances.
Titles and abstracts for papers (250 words max) are invited by Friday
March 31 2017. The abstract should clearly describe the key question,
the theoretical and methodological approach, the evidence the argument
is based on, as well as its wider implication of international relevance.
Please send submissions to the email address (ijpp /at/ politics.ox.ac.uk)
<mailto:(ijpp /at/ politics.ox.ac.uk)> with the subject line “IJPP conference
submission” including in the email the full title of your paper, the

send attachments.) Full papers will be due August 25 2017.

which examines commercially-viable and democratically-beneficial ways of
improving online news coverage. In 2014-15, she is a fellow at the
