This year’s RUCARR conference will approach the region from a variety of disciplines within the social sciences and the humanities through the unifying thematic lens of contemporary mass and social media.

In a wide sense this includes more specific topics such as (but not necessarily limited to): the use and abuse of various forms of media in conflict, political competition and cultural production; “fake news”; influences and potentials (positive and negative) of mass and social media (political resistance, social movements, trolls etc.); language and discourse; propaganda and ideology; freedom of expression and press; media as sources of data etc.
