Zoom, 13-16 September 2021

On 13-16 September 2021, the seventh conference of the International
Journal of Press/Politics, focused on academic research on the
relationship between media and political processes around the world,
will be held virtually. Professor Young Mie Kim from the University of
Wisconsin will deliver a keynote lecture.

The deadline for submission of abstracts is 5 July 2021. Attendees
will be notified of acceptance by 12 July 2021. Full papers based on
accepted abstracts will be due 1 September 2021. A selection of the
best full papers presented at the conference will be published in the
journal after peer review.

The conference will be free to attend. There will be a voluntary
conference registration fee for presenters of GBP 30. Attendees will
need to register to receive the secure link to participate in the

will be able to make a symbolic donation of GBP 5. The software will
be able to host up to 500 participants at any time. Recordings of the
conference video feed will be made available to the public shortly
after the event.

The virtual conference brings together scholars conducting
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 disciplines, countries, and
methodological approaches to advance research in this area. The
conference will be held on four days, in half-day sessions alternating
mornings and afternoons that will include presentations and networking
sessions. The program of the 2020 conference, which adopted a similar
format, is available at

Examples of relevant topics include, but are not limited to, the
political implications of changes in media systems; the importance of
digital media for engaging with news and politics; analysis of the
factors affecting the quality of political information and public
discourse; studies of the role of entertainment and popular culture in
how people engage with current affairs; studies of relations between
political actors and journalists; analyses of the role of visuals and
emotion in the production and processing of public information; and
research on political communication during and beyond elections by
government, political parties, interest groups, and social movements.
The journal and the conference have a particular interest in studies
that adopt comparative approaches, represent substantial theoretical
or methodological advances, or focus on parts of the world that are
under-researched in the international English language academic

Titles and abstracts for papers (maximum 300 words) are invited by 5
July 2021. 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 implications and the extent to which
they are of international relevance.

Please send submissions via the online form available at

The conference is organized by Cristian Vaccari (Loughborough
University, Editor-in-Chief of IJPP). Please contact Professor Vaccari

Professor Young Mie Wim, University of Wisconsin
Young Mie Kim is a Professor of the School of Journalism and Mass
Communication and a Faculty Affiliate of the Department of Political
Science. Kim is a 2019 Andrew Carnegie Fellow. Kim’s research concerns
data-driven, algorithm-based, digitally mediated political
communication. Kim’s recent research project, Project DATA (Digital Ad
Tracking & Analysis), empirically investigates the sponsors, content,
and targets of digital political campaigns across multiple platforms
with a user-based, real-time, ad tracking tool that reverse engineers
the algorithms of political campaigns. Kim and her team’s research,
“The Stealth Media? Groups and Targets behind Divisive Issue Campaigns
on Facebook,” identified “suspicious groups,” including Russian groups
on Facebook. The work received the Kaid-Sanders Best Article of the
Year in Political Communication (2018), awarded by the International
Communication Association. Kim testified at the Federal Election
Commission‘s hearings on the rulemaking of internet communication
disclaimers and presented her research at the Congressional briefings
on foreign interference in elections. Kim also spoke at the European
Parliament on her research on data-driven political advertising and
inequality in political involvement.
