About The Event
CSPT’s 2018 Annual Conference marks the organization’s 50th anniversary by considering again what the humanist tradition or style is and what it can contribute to the analysis of politics today. Behavioral and formal approaches to the study of politics continue to challenge the value and coherence of humanistic approaches. Moreover, fundamental aspects of political life – its modes of political speech, its institutional forms (political parties, legislatures, constitutions), its aspiration to critical debate – seem to be continually interrupted by revolutions in communications and social media. The conference will take a historical perspective on these changes by exploring how modes of mediation including, most recently, the fast and frequent sharing of words and images, shape and transform political life.
