ECPR 2013 Panel: Nonverbal Communication
ECPR 2013 Panel: Visuals and Sound in Politics: The Persuasive Effects of Nonverbal Political Communication, ECPR 2013 General Conference, Bordeaux 4-7 September 2013
The goal of this panel is to bring together researchers working on nonverbal communication to discuss the latest results as well as the methods which have been employed for this study. We welcome all papers studying the impact of nonverbal communication on persuasion and democratic behavior. Among the possible topics, we encourage the submission of papers about the importance of specific aspects of nonverbal communication for persuasion; as well as papers on the importance of the context in which the communication takes place; on the importance of a politician's characteristics (such as gender, age or ethnic background); and/ or on the interaction between the nonverbal dimension and the verbal dimension of the communication. We encourage experimental and survey-based studies, using physiological and/or attitudinal measures.
