CALL FOR ABSTRACTS
POWER, EMOTION, AND DISINFORMATION
University of Beira Interior, May 7-8
Labcom - Comunicação e Artes is going to promote the 3rd International
Conference "Pathologies and Dysfunctions of Democracy in the Media
Context" on the 7th and 8th of May at the University of Beira Interior
Covilhã, Portugal. The 3rd editions of this conference will be focused
on “Power, Emotion, and Disinformation".
Like the 1st Conference, centered on in pathological and dysfunctional
processes of the democratic process, and the 2nd Conference, centered on
the dystopian portraits of some of these phenomena, the 3rdconference
will obserrve media phenomena that impact participation at the most
different levels of citizenship. The selected papers may be published
in a book and/or in a scientific journal that will be announced briefly
The 3rd editions of this conference will be focus on “Power, Emotion,
and Disinformation” and intend to bring together researchers in
Communication Sciences; Social Sciences and Humanities (Political
Science, Political Theory, Philosophy, Sociology, Psychology,
Economics), Arts (Design, Media Arts and Cinema) without minimizing and,
rather, stimulating the opening to areas such as Computer Engineering
and Computer Sciences.
Abstracts must be sent by March 30. Papers written in Portuguese,
English or Spanish will be accepted.
The international conferences focus on three themes that will be
addressed in three plenary panels and three sets of parallel sessions:
• Misinformation and fake news - On the one hand, to evaluate phenomena
of visibility/invisibility, silencing, and concealment in journalistic
information processes. On the other hand, it is intended to identify the
intervention of specialized political communication agents: advisors,
spin doctors, influencers, strategic communication agencies and other
forms of political communication.
• “Datification of the public space” - This item intends to reflect on
the technological dimension of manipulation. Among the multiple
possibilities that interested parties and participants can cover are the
identification of user-profiles and preferences, the massive use of data
and the transfer of data to manipulative contexts at different levels;
the open possibilities for carrying out simulations made possible by
virtual reality, augmented reality and other digital technologies; the
manipulation of emotion, the use of algorithms and their consequences.
• post-truth- Around this keyword, it intends to describe, analyze and
investigate the reasons that make possible the possibilities of
negationist theses, historical revisionism, and in particular, disbelief
in science and its achievements manifested in phenomena such as the
return of creationism, the discussion around vaccines. the denial of the
sphericity of the earth or, worse, the denial of climatic changes.
Each of these three themes will give rise to a panel or round table
followed by 3 parallel sessions of 4 people each in a total of 36
Empirical study and case approaches are welcome, as well as theoretical
approaches complemented with examples. Analyzes and reflections can
focus on communication processes online or offline, or complementary.
Abstracts must have a maximum of 400 words (excluding tables, figures,
and references), including 3 to 5 keywords and must be written in
Portuguese, Spanish and English.
They must describe the research topic and the theoretical and
methodological approaches. Images/tables/graphs are allowed in the
summary but are not counted in the word count. All abstracts will be
subject to peer review.

author (s). The author's details (name, affiliation and contact details)
