Subject: DNS5 Summer School | Political Discourse and Mediatization of Politics in the Globalized World Dear colleagues, if this is relevant, please spread the information about DNS5 Summer School | Political Discourse and Mediatization of Politics in the Globalized World The aim of DNS5 Summer School is to discuss theoretical frameworks, methodologies and methods of political discourse analysis in the context of diverse information channels in the global digital space. Politics in the contemporary globalized world is inconceivable without media which shape and frame communicative practices, the process being commonly referred to as mediatization. Digital media abundance poses new challenges which are theorized in various interdisciplinary strands of research which attempt to understand recent political changes through analyzing effects of targeting, algorithmization, information bubbles, etc. Whereas optimists welcome new media opportunities for political thought and practice, skeptical voices raise issues of political manipulation and discuss possible consequences of ethical and epistemological relativism flourishing within the digital environment. There is a lack of common theoretical ground uniting socio-political, technological, and discursive perspectives. For this reason, a space for discussing and exploring the methodological crossroads of these disciplinary domains is needed. DNS5 Summer School is aimed to become such a space. Scholars of different disciplinary backgrounds and research experience are invited to address issues of contemporary political discourse, media, and communication studies. We expect that participants of DNS5 Summer School will get new insights and directions for their research.
