Polarization in politics has recently acquired great importance as a
subject of discussion in Central and Eastern Europe. The panel aims to
bring media and communication scholars together and examine the
application of new analytical tools in measuring political
polarization in the media spaces. Inspired by the thesis of hybridity
and the networked publics, we create forum for academic dispute in
which we recognize the media sphere (incl. social media) as spatial
imagination of representations and narratives on politics that carry
the potential to make the invisible publicly visible and maintain
connection between the key communicators. It is argued that today’s
media ecosystem is more than a convergence of offline and online
spaces: it is the transcendence into a new form of interactions by
allowing for a rapid conversation on politics across multiple
platforms with virtual proximities and distances between the actors.
  
The body of scientific thinking depicts polarization as the divergence
of politics, which highlights the creation and stabilization of
political blocs, separate political communities. Speculations began to
rise that there has been no such thing called mainstream media sphere
in CEE countries, but distinctive group of media outlets have evolved
to create ideological ‘bubbles’. In this ‘bubble’, the lines between
audiences, journalists and politicians are blurring: instead of being
neutral carrier of messages, media have become a focal point of
politically relevant communities. Nowadays, the key question to be
addressed is whether the fragmented and heavily partisan media sphere
is inclusive enough for connecting divergent journalistic opinions or
there has been a gradual emergence of political polarization because
of the media instrumentalization of political agents.

There is however pressing need for refreshing the methodological
apparatus for innovative examinations of political polarization in
media. With this in mind, we invite empirical contributions to
investigate the different aspects of the widened and widening
discursive gap between media outlets having left and right, or liberal
and conservative political orientations. The panel promotes the
relational approach to study polarization meaning that architecture of
the media space can be defined through the relations among the media
platforms. Qualitative and quantitative researches, single case
studies and cross-case comparisons form the body of this panel. We pay
special attention to the use of mixed methods such as the combination
of content-oriented examinations and network analysis. Particular
attention will be devoted to the cross-country comparability of the
datasets and to the regional specificities, therefore the contributors
are encouraged to discuss the potential common framework for the
analysis of the forthcoming 2019 European Parliamentary election
campaign during the panel.

A special issue is planned to be published based on the best papers
collected for the panel.
