[Commlist] DiscourseNet Summer School 5
Mon Feb 11 11:22:01 GMT 2019
The application deadline has been extended till March, 1st.
DNS5 Summer School “Political Discourse and Mediatization of Politics in
the Globalized World”
16-19 August 2019
Nizhny Novgorod, Russia
DEADLINE EXTENSION TILL MARCH 1ST, 2019
The aim of DNS5 Summer School is to discuss theoretical frameworks,
methodologies, and methods of political discourse analysis in the
context of diverse information channels in the global digital space.
Politics in the contemporary globalized world is inconceivable without
media which shape and frame communicative practices, the process being
commonly referred to as /mediatization/.Digital media abundance poses
new challenges which are theorized in various interdisciplinary strands
of research which attempt to understand recent political changes through
analyzing effects of targeting, algorithmization, information bubbles,
etc. Whereas optimists welcome new media opportunities for political
thought and practice, skeptical voices raise issues of political
manipulation and discuss possible consequences of ethical and
epistemological relativism flourishing within the digital environment.
There is a lack of common theoretical ground uniting socio-political,
technological, and discursive perspectives. For this reason, a space for
discussing and exploring the methodological crossroads of these
disciplinary domains is needed.
DNS5 Summer School is aimed to become such a space. Scholars of
different disciplinary backgrounds and research experience are invited
to address issues of contemporary political discourse, media, and
communication studies. We expect that participants of DNS5 Summer School
will get new insights and directions for their research.
