Summary/Abstract: In this section we provide a taste of research carried out under the heading of new media and politics by a team of researchers in media studies, sociology, and political science at Masaryk University in Brno. As always, some disclaimers are due before we outline the contributions that appear in this section. “Politics” and “political” are terms that have increasingly become descriptive of wide areas of our (everyday) lives – ranging from culture through sexuality all the way to how we dispose of our rubbish. In this section we attempt to provide a selection of our research that covers areas from institutional politics through citizens’ participatory practices to the fate of Europe’s largest and, arguably, most neglected minority – the Roma.
