A paper I submitted with Nicole Podschuweit of Erfurt University (who is first author) has been accepted for presentation at DGPuK 2015, the annual conference of the German Association for Communication Research.
The paper’s title is “Haustürwahlkampf in Deutschland. Eine empirische Analyse am Beispiel des Wahlkampfes zur Thüringer Landtagswahl 2014”, which roughly translates as “Door-to-door campaigning in Germany. An empirical analysis of the Thuringian state election campaign in 2014”. The paper is based on interviews with campaign officials and a quantitative survey among campaign aids.
Darmstadt is my home town. I went to grammar school not far from the conference site. That makes this upcoming presentation a very special success for me.
Update 2014-12-18: A second paper has been accepted as part of the Panel “Ethische Herausforderungen kommunikationswissenschaftlicher Forschung. Anwendungsfelder, Anwendungsrelevanz und Perspektiven” (“Ethical challenges in communication research. Applications, relevance, and perspectives”) proposed by Katrin Döveling from U of Leipzig. My part is about “Sozialwissenschaftliche Experimente: Ethische Aspekte am Beispiel von Furcht erzeugenden Stimuli” which translates as “Experiments in the social sciences: Ethical aspects of fear-inducing stimuli”.
