PhD Research Webinar: "Communication, Citizenship and Representative Democracy: Theoretical and Practical Approaches"

Convened by Nancy Gakahu, University of Leeds, UK

IAMCR is pleased to invite applications for the 2022 IAMCR presidential PhD Research Webinar on “Communication, Citizenship and Representative
Democracy: Theoretical and Practical Approaches” convened by Nancy Gakahu, University of Leeds, UK. This webinar intends to bring together
doctoral scholars to discuss the place and role of citizens in representative democracy, and mainly, how citizens use various media and communication channels and platforms to connect and engage with the political class.

The role and place of citizens in a representative democracy is an important but overlooked component in governance and democratic fronts. This problem stems from misconceptions of political engagements as mere activities done to the people, thereby elevating the actions of the representative (politicians) over those of the represented (the citizens). In a representative democracy, however, citizens have a deliberative role and should be regarded as partners with their
representatives. Representative democracy is at its best when it involves pursuits that are done ‘with the people.’

We encourage a wide range of topics from doctoral students who are interested in the subject of Media, Politics, Communication and Democracy

Potential topics include (but are not limited to):

*How do citizens utilise various media (electronic, print, digital, social) for democratic engagement?
*Can media be utilised by citizens to undermine representative democracy?
*The interplay between media, culture, citizenship, and representative democracy.
*The interplay between media ownership, regulation, citizenship, and democratic processes.
*The transformative power of media and communication technologies in democratic politics.
*Citizen journalism and democratic processes.

the webinar, and also Mazlum Kemal Dağdelen (IAMCR presidential assistant), with the subject “IAMCR Presidential PhD Research Webinar: {title of your paper proposal}" by 20 August 2022. If there are several presenters, each should fill in an individual application form and send
