Second call for papers

Has there been a shift in political use of the Internet and digital new
media - a new Web 2.0 politics based on participatory values? How do
broader social, cultural, and economic shifts towards Web 2.0 impact, if
at all, on the contexts, the organizational structures, and the
communication of politics and policy? Does Web 2.0 hinder or help
democratic citizenship? This conference provides an opportunity for
researchers to share and debate perspectives.

Leeds; Rachel Gibson, Centre for Mass Communication Research, University
of Leicester; Helen Margetts, Oxford Internet Institute; Micah Sifry,

National Committee.

About the New Political Communication Unit

Led by the Department of Politics and International Relations at Royal
Holloway, University of London, the New Political Communication Unit was
created in the Spring of 2007. Our research agenda consists of three
strands:

    * Comparative and international political communication: the
Internet's impact on political mobilization, campaigning and identity;
the relationship between media, war, new security challenges and
conflict; audience reception studies in the context of the proliferation
of media; the dynamic between citizens' changing uses of media and a
transforming news environment; citizen journalism; technology and
mobilities.
    * Communication and comparative governance: e-government,
e-democracy and the changing interface between representative
institutions, public bureaucracies and citizens; changing organizational
practices shaped by new patterns of communication.
    * Comparative and international communication policy: Internet and
new media governance and regulation; privacy, surveillance and security,
the political economy of new media; cultural diversity policy; digital
divide and development issues.

We offer a taught Masters stream in New Political Communication and PhD
supervision in our areas of expertise.

The Unit's network inside Royal Holloway incorporates academic staff
from the Department of Politics and International Relations, the
Department of Media Arts, the School of Management, the UNESCO Centre
for ICT4D in the Department of Geography, the Department of Psychology
and the Department of Computer Science.

Our external networks include scholars and practitioners in a wide
variety of organisations and countries.
