2nd Call for papers: PSA Media and Politics Group Annual Conference 2013
13th & 14th November 2013
The Media School, Bournemouth University
Conference website: http://microsites.bournemouth.ac.uk/media-politics-2013/

Minority Voices, Media and Politics

The primary theme of this year's conference will be ‘Minority Voices,
Media and Politics’ - the often problematic relationship between the
media, politics and marginalised, silenced or minority voices in
contemporary society. The conference will take a broad approach to
this topic, and encourages papers which approach this subject from
different disciplinary, methodological, historical and national
perspectives, and which examine the impacts of contemporary media
(both new and traditional forms) upon practices and concepts of
exclusion and power. It is the intention of the conference organisers
to invite selected papers from the conference as contributions to an
edited collection on this topic. If you would like to be considered
for this please indicate as such on your abstract.

The Media & Politics Group operates an inclusive policy, and papers
dealing with any aspect of media and politics are welcomed. This may
include areas of political communication and journalism, but also
includes a broader view of the political within such areas as online
media, television, cinema and media arts, both factual and fictional.
In addition to academic research, the conference will also welcome
practice-based work related to the area of media and politics.
