Political Communication Division

Political Communication Division logo

The purpose of the Political Communication Division (PCD) is to support the work of scholars and practitioners engaged in the research, teaching, and practice of political communication. The scope of the PCD is broad, as the study of communication and politics may encompass the communicative activity of citizens, individual political figures, public and governmental institutions, the media, political campaigns, advocacy groups, and social movements. The PCD recognizes and encourages research that addresses political communication topics in all contexts and levels of analysis, employing a variety of methodologies. Research presented by PCD members at NCA’s Annual Convention regularly addresses such topics as political campaigns, media and politics, presidential rhetoric, social movements, political advertising, campaign debates, civic engagement, the public sphere, women and politics, international and comparative politics, and new media and politics.
