Indonesia International Graduate Conference on Communication

The Indonesia International Graduate Conference on Communication (IndoIGCC) is an event that brings together graduate students and early career researchers in studying media and communication issues in regards to broader social and political transformations. IndoIGCC is hosted by the Department of Communication, Faculty of Social and Political Sciences, Universitas Indonesia, realised through a cooperation between the Graduate Programme in Communication and the Communication Research Centre. IndoIGCC 2017 participants come from different academic disciplines such as media studies, communication science, international relations, political science, sociology, cultural studies, anthropology, psychology, economics, architecture, and many others.

 

COMMUNICATION GOVERNANCE AND RESEARCH: POST-TRUTH ERA

The theme of the conference speaks of the challenges of Communication Governance and Research in a Post-Truth Era. The theme encourages graduate students and early career researchers to rethink the way data is collected and organised in a time were ambiguous statements are more believable than facts. It is an event where participants can practice internationalising Indonesian cases in this very specific social turn. This practice is expected to support students and early career researchers to consider new, relevant ways of carrying out research.

This specific social turn is often mentioned by mainstream media and opinion leaders alike as the “post-truth era”, a time in which the direction of official politics all over the world – UK’s Brexit Referendum and the US’ Presidential Elections – are motivated by the influence of emotional appeal rather than objective facts (Higgin, 2016; Wang, 2016; Keyes, 2004). The “post-truth” era is a time where the line between truth and lies, honestly and deceit, fiction and non-fiction has blurred (Keyes, 2004).

Thus, the Graduate Programme of Communication, Department of Communication, Faculty of Social and Political Sciences, Universitas Indonesia has selected this theme as a trigger to discuss the current societal context in which social research is carried out. The event is organised under the Communication Research Centre, Department of Communication, Faculty of Social and Political Sciences, Universitas Indonesia.
