Narratives reflect our world – more so than even metaphors or myths, they help us to create and remember meanings and thus influence our understanding of ourselves and of the world in which we live. This pre-conference seeks to re-engage with the myriad competing and conflicting narratives available, being chosen or rejected, being re-appropriated, shared, collected or turned into meta-narratives.

Despite its considerable contributions, big data analytics has been criticized for the lack of contextual consideration -- scholarship with computational methods may suffer from the pitfall of not unpacking, recognizing, and theorizing the richness of associated contextual elements in (big) data. This preconference aims to address such issues by advancing a context-aware approach in computational methods and by articulating an interrogation of contextual elements in using computational methods.

This one-day virtual symposium focuses upon the specific non-Western context of digital political communication and women. While much research has been undertaken and published upon the use and impact of social media, largely by male politicians and policymakers in the West, there has been a paucity of similar investigations elsewhere in the world.
