Invited presentation at the ECREA Political Communication Interim Conference 2017

Dr. Indira Dupuis, principal researcher at the MFT project, will present a talk at the 2017 ECREA Political Communication Section Interim Conference on ‘Political Communication in Times of Crisis: New Challenges, Trends & Possibilities’. Taking place on November 22-23 in Zurich, the conference will bring together scholars in the field of political communication who study new shifts and patterns transforming media and society. With a particular emphasis on conceptual considerations, Dupuis will contribute to the conference as part of the session on comparative and international perspectives with a presentation entitled “Researching the Hungarian Journalism’s Contribution to the Polarization of the Public Discourse.” Using the case study of Hungarian journalism, her talk will elaborate how different institutional- and actor-level interests from within and outside the editorial offices contribute to the polarization of the public sphere.
