(2011) Bartha, Eszter – Tamás Krausz (eds.): Háború és nemzeti önismeret (War and national remembrance). Budapest, Ruszisztikai Könyvek XXXII.

The book includes essays from Russian and Hungarian authors, which engage in a critical dialogue about Hungary’s role in the Second World War and the attack against the Soviet Union. The volume seeks to show that as opposed to various national myths, the Hungarian government bears a heavy responsibility for the country’s entering the war, and the Hungarian army committed serious war crimes in the occupied territories of the Soviet Union.

Alexandra Katsanidou, SPS Fellow 2009-2010

Intergroup Conflict and the Media: An Experimental Study of Greek Students after the 2008 Riots,David Hugh-Jones, Alexia Katsanidou, Gerhard Riener

Abstract: We report a laboratory experiment in the context of the December 2008 riots in Greece, after the killing of a 15-year-old student by a policeman. Our sample comprised 266 students from the University of Thessaloniki. We tested whether media reports can affect people’s willingness to harm those in opposing groups by examining the way students allocated money between themselves and others of various professions, including police, in modified dictator games. Exposure to media reports decreased giving to police, but only when choices were private. Laboratory behaviour was correlated with self-reported participation in demonstrations, supporting the external validity of our measure. Media exposure appears to have affected behaviour by different pathways than those proposed in the existing literature, including “spiral of silence” and “frame alignment” theories.

Lorenzo Mosca, SPS Fellow 2006-2007


(2012) Lorenzo Mosca, La webpolitica. Istituzioni, candidati, movimenti fra siti, blog e social network, Le Lettere, Firenze.

Abstract: Il libro presenta una riflessione sulla politica online in Italia, interrogandosi sul se e sul come internet contribuisca a ridefinire i confini, i processi e gli attori dell’arena politica. Proponendo il termine webpolitica, ci si focalizza sull’uso di internet da parte di alcuni dei principali attori del sistema politico italiano, presentando i risultati di una serie di ricerche effettuate dall’autore nel corso degli ultimi anni. In particolare, si guarda a come internet influenza i rapporti fra cittadini e istituzioni nelle fasi di governo, a come interviene nelle relazioni fra candidati ed elettori durante le campagne elettorali, alle modalità con cui esso è utilizzato da soggetti esterni all’arena politica istituzionale, come i movimenti sociali.

Questo volume è indirizzato a tutti coloro che si interessano di comunicazione politica online e intende proporsi come un’introduzione al tema per studenti e studiosi di scienze della comunicazione, sociologia e scienza politica.
