Media and Politics

The Media and Politics Group (MPG) aims to act as a forum for discussion between a wide variety of academics with interests in the study of media policy, journalism, political communications, new information technologies and other topics.

The Group always contributes a stream of panels to the PSA annual conference, as well as running its own successful annual conference every November.

The Group convenors are Professor Michael Temple, Dr Alec Charles, Dr Emily Harmer and Dr Dan Jackson

The 2015 MPG Annual Conference was held at University of Chester on Thursday 5th and Friday 6th November 2015. The conference website is here.

The next MPG Annual Conference will be held on December 12-13, 2016, at LSE. Conference website is here: http://www.lse.ac.uk/media@lse/events/PSA-Conference-16.aspx
