Lost in CCI is delighted to announce the appointment of two more new members of staff. Mehita Iqani and Frédérik Lasage come to us from the London School of Economics, where they both completed their Doctorates -and at the same time managed to achieve teaching awards.
Dr Mehita Iqani comes from South Africa and her PhD thesis focused on the mediation of consumerism, magazine covers and newsstand spaces. Her research interests include visual culture, visual research methods, magazines, consumerism and consumption, media in public space, and independent creative production. On top of that, Mehita was the founding editor of ITCH, an online/offline creative expression magazine, backed by her experience in media entrepreneurship and media strategy consulting.
Dr Frédérik Lasage’s appointment represents something of a homecoming –he gained his MA in Cultural and Creative Industries with distinction here at King’s in 2005. Fred is a French-Canadian and researched his PhD thesis on the way in which art engages with new media. In addition to teaching at the LSE, he has taught at Cambridge University and Vassar College. While at King’s he interned at the Clore Leadership programme. Outside academia he has worked as a researcher for Proboscis in both the UK and Japan.
Both Mehita and Frédérik will be working as Teaching Fellows and Lost in CCI is delighted to have these excellent new colleagues join us here at CMCI.
