#P3: Publics, Politics & Promotion
#P3 is a platform for researchers interested in the contemporary forms of public life. We examine processes, practices, strategies and performances of public action and cross disciplinary boundaries bringing together studies of political and promotional communication. We assess public life in terms of communicative power – who gets what, by which means and with what kinds of consequences. We also ask whether public life is becoming more transparent or participative or whether practices of shadow governance are at work.
#P3 is based at the University of Helsinki, Department of Social Research, Media & Communication Studies.
#P3 organizes seminars, workshops and talks. #P3 Kitchen blog tells what is cooking currently.
