MAPD 2020 Multidisciplinary Approaches to Political Discourse

Along with traditional broadcasting and reporting of politicians’ speeches, party political broadcasts, campaign advertisements and government statements, we increasingly experience the political daily in new popular media forms such as Facebook feeds, promotional videos, tweets and online mash ups. These transformations require us to think critically about issues of saturation, manipulation, relations of power, political correctness, interference, influence, counter-discourses, subversion, information bubbles and fake news, to name a few.
