Symposium Transnational Connections: Challenges and Opportunities for Political Communication


IE School of Communication and the University of Pennsylvania's Annenberg School for Communication are partnering to organize the international symposium Transnational Connections Challenges and Opportunities for Political Communication. The event will take place at the IE University campus on March 24-25 and will bring together the top academic experts and practitioners from throughout the world to discuss new trends in the field.

"It's a pleasure to work with Annenberg and with relevant associations and thinkers from around the world for this event, the first to be held in continental Europe." says Samuel Martin-Barbero, Dean of IE School of Communication. "The initiative will reinforce international cooperation between the scholars who examine communication campaigns and the practitioners who design and disseminate campaign messages, thereby facilitating a constructive debate for the future."

The two-day event will include panels of international experts such as Shanto Iyengar (Stanford University), John Kelly (Harvard University), Adrian Monck (World Economic Forum), Monroe Price (Annenberg) or Marc Smith (ex-Microsoft).

Topics include:

  • Political communication as a international phenomenon
  • Interconnections between academic perspectives and professional practice
  • Learning from differences in the European and the US models
  • New media technologies and its effect on sociopolitical matters

"As a result of new geopolitical realities and intensified competition for global allegiances, long-held beliefs in political systems are being called into question. In this context, this conference's efforts to broaden the scope of comparative political communication research beyond the United States, encourage international dialogue and collaboration, and increase the profile of European political communication research are timely and significant, and will yield invaluable benefits to the field of political communication in Europe and beyond." declared Professor Monroe E. Price, J.D., Full Adjunct Professor and Director of the Center for Global Communication Studies at the University of Pennsylvania's Annenberg School for Communication.

"Symposium participants will explore the cutting-edge ideas in political communication, the intersections between research and practice, as well as the challenges and opportunities for transnational collaboration" declares Magdalena Wojcieszak, Ph.D., (ASC '08) Coordinator of the symposium and assistant professor in political communication and public opinion at IE School of Communication.

The event is open to general public. Students, scholars and professional from the field can register on the symposium website.
The Symposium is organized with the Center for Global Communication Studies at the Annenberg School for Communication, University of Pennsylvania, as well as in partnership with the Political Communication Divisions of: International Communication Association (ICA), the World Association of Public Opinion Research (WAPOR), International Political Science Association (IPSA), International Association for Media and Communication Research (IAMCR), European Communication Research and Education Association (ECREA).
