Call for book chapter proposals
***Contemporary Politics, Communication, and the Impact on Democracy***
This book is aimed to analyze the relationship among politics and communication in the current context of increasing polarization and their disruptive effects over democracy (Bennett & Pfetsch, 2018). From an interdisciplinary approach, the book is intended to offer an overview of the threats faced by traditional and stable democracies in a hybrid communicative scenario (Chadwick, 2013) in which disinformation (Guess, Nyhan & Reifler, 2018) reaches worrying levels.
The objective of this book is to address a relevant issue that involves a multidisciplinary approach, that is, the relationships between communication, politics, and democracy. It is aimed to offer a valuable contribution regarding the challenges and threats faced by contemporary democracies while disinformation, polarization and populism have a main role in the present hybrid communicative scenario. This is a relevant and current topic that makes the book suitable for scholars and professionals working in the areas of political communication, political sciences, journalism and media. One of the strongest features of the book is the multi-national approach to the topic.
