    Images of Politics
    History and Development of Political Communication on Television
    International conference - Amsterdam - October 23, 24 and 25, 1997

    An international conference on the changing role of television in political
    communication. The central question is whether changes in media and
    politics have led to a different, more entertainment focused 'media logic',
    rightly or wrongly referred to as 'americanization'. The conference will
    focus on both controlled publicity (party political broadcasts and
    political 'spots', media strategies of political parties, political
    marketing) and on free publicity (news, talkshows, media-political
    interaction). Although the main focus will be on television, the use of new
    media such as the Internet is also of interest.
    Next to a range of workshops, keynote speakers will address and visually
    illustrate the various topics. Audiovisual materials - the images and
    sounds themselves - are an important feature of the conference. It will
    begin with a screening-day, with audiovisual presentations that give an
    impression of the development of political communication in different
    countries. The lectures as well will be illustrated by videoclips. It will
    be a unique opportunity to see rare audiovisual footage of party political
    broadcasts, propaganda films and
    different examples of free publicity.
