More than 50 international experts to examine new challenges in the field

The IE School of Communication at IE University and the University of Pennsylvania’s Annenberg School for Communication are partnering to organize the international symposium Transnational Connections Challenges and Opportunities for Political Communication. The event will take place at the IE University campus in Segovia, Spain on March 24-25 and will bring together the top academic experts and practitioners from throughout the world to discuss new trends in the field.

IE School of Communication / IE University y la Annenberg School of Communication de la Universidad de Pennsylvania, organizarán los próximos días 24 y 25 de marzo el simposio internacional: “Transnational Connection: Challenges and Opportunities for Political Communication”. El evento, que se celebrará en el campus de IE University en Segovia, reunirá a más de 50 académicos, expertos y profesionales del sector, con el objetivo de analizar las nuevas tendencias en comunicación política. 

“It’s a pleasure to work with Annenberg and with relevant associations and thinkers from around the world for this event, the first to be held in continental Europe.” says Samuel Martin-Barbero, Dean of IE School of Communication.  “The initiative will reinforce international cooperation between the scholars who examine communication campaigns and the practitioners who design and disseminate campaign messages, thereby facilitating a constructive debate for the future.” 

The two-day event will include panels of international experts such as Shanto Iyengar (Stanford University), John Kelly (Harvard University), Adrian Monck (World Economic Forum), Monroe Price (Annenberg) or Marc Smith  (Connected Action Consulting Group).


Topics include:

  • Political communication as a international phenomenon
  • Interconnections between academic perspectives and professional practice
  • Learning from differences in the European and the US models
  • New media technologies and its effect on sociopolitical matters

“As a result of new geopolitical realities and intensified competition for global allegiances, long-held beliefs in political systems are being called into question. In this context, this conference’s efforts to broaden the scope of comparative political communication research beyond the United States, encourage international dialogue and collaboration, and increase the profile of European political communication research are timely and significant, and will yield invaluable benefits to the field of political communication in Europe and beyond.” declared Professor Monroe E. Price, J.D., Full Adjunct Professor and  Director of the Center for Global Communication Studies at  the University of Pennsylvania’s Annenberg School for Communication. 

 “Symposium participants will explore the cutting-edge ideas in political communication, the intersections between research and practice, as well as the challenges and opportunities for transnational collaboration” declares Magdalena Wojcieszak, Ph.D., (ASC ’08) Coordinator of the symposium and assistant professor in political communication and public opinion at IE School of Communication. The event is open to general public. Students, scholars and professional from the field can register on the symposium website

“Es un placer trabajar junto con la Annenberg School of Communication y con la asociaciones y los académicos mas prestigiosos a nivel mundial; estamos ante el primer evento de este tipo que se celebra en Europa” señala Samuel Marín-Barbero, Decano del IE School of Communication. “La iniciativa reforzará la cooperación internacional entre los investigadores que examinan las campañas de comunicación, y los profesionales que diseñan y difunden los mensajes de estas campañas, facilitando así un debate constructivo para el futuro”. 

Durante las dos jornadas del simposio acudirán, entre otros, expertos de la talla de Shanto Iyengar (Stanford University), John Kelly (Harvard University), Adrian Monck (Director de Comunicación del World Economic Forum), Monroe Price (Annenberg) o Marc Smith  (Connected Action Consulting Group) para debatir sobre cuestiones como: 

  • La comunicación política como fenómeno transnacional.
  • Interconexiones entre la visión académica y la práctica profesional.
  • Las diferencias entre el modelo europeo y estadounidense.
  • Las nuevas tecnologías de los medios de comunicación y sus efectos en materia socio-política. 

“Como resultado de las nuevas realidades geopolíticas y la intensa competencia de alianzas globales, asuntos que no se trataban en el ámbito político empiezan a ganar relevancia. En este contexto, el objetivo de la conferencia es profundizar en el alcance de la investigación comparativa sobre la comunicación política, más allá de los Estados Unidos. Fomentar el diálogo y la colaboración internacional e intensificar el papel de la investigación en comunicación política en Europa, son tareas oportunas y significativas que aportarán beneficios inestimables en el ámbito de la comunicación política internacional”, apuntó el Doctor Monroe Price, Director del Centro de Estudios Globales de Comunicación de la Annenberg School for Communication.

“Los participantes en el simposio analizarán las ideas más innovadoras sobre comunicación política, entre la investigación y la práctica, así como los retos y oportunidades para la colaboración transnacional”, subraya Magdalena Wojcieszak, coordinadora del simposio y profesora asistente de comunicación política y opinión pública del IE School of Communication.

IE School of Communication organiza el simposio junto a las más importantes entidades internacionales: Center for Global Communication Studies de la Annenberg School for Communication, International Communication Association (ICA), World Association of Public Opinion Research (WAPOR), International Political Science Association (IPSA), International Association for Media and Communication Research (IAMCR) y European Communication Research and Education Association (ECREA).
