CMCI is delighted to welcome Danilo Rothberg from Brazil as a visiting professor to the department. He comes to us from the Communication and Media Studies programme at Sao Paulo State University, which is part of their Faculty of Architecture, Arts and Communication.
Danilo is also the principal investigator of an interdisciplinary research project funded by the Sao Paulo Research Foundation. The project focuses upon the way in which online public communications networks have been helping to mediate conflicts arising from the design and implementation of environmental policies and sustainability in Brazil. Case studies include regional councils’ management of river catchment areas as an example of effective democratic innovation in accountability and governance.
Here at King’s, he’ll be plugging into our expertise in memory and cultural studies and exchanging ideas on research projects and collaborations with CMCI scholars. Be sure to say “Olá” when you see him.
