The Department of Social and Political Sciences of the University of Milan (Italy) and the Political Communication Division of the International Communication Association (ICA) are co-organizing the 6th edition of the International Summer School in Political Communication and Electoral Behaviour, to be held 9-14 July 2018 in Milan.
The “Milan Summer School” addresses theoretical and empirical questions in political communication, with a special focus on the relationship between political communication, media coverage, and political participation and democracy. This year’s themes will include classic subjects such as public opinion and effects of election campaigns, but also some current ‘hot topics’ such as social media and populism.
Confirmed speakers include Patricia Moy (University of Washington and President-elect of the ICA), Peter Van Aelst (University of Antwerp and Chair of the Pol Comm Division), Rüdiger Schmitt-Beck (Universität Mannheim), Frank Esser (University of Zurich), Cristian Vaccari (University of Loughborough), Hanspeter Kriesi (European University Institute), Lilach Nir (Hebrew University of Jerusalem), Pablo Barberá (University of Southern California), Luigi Curini and Andrea Ceron (University of Milan), Kate Kenski (University of Arizona).
