Organised by the Loughborough University Research Staff Association and the Institute of Advanced Studies, the lecture series showcases Loughborough University’s Research Fellows, who will present their cutting-edge research and outline their career to-date.
The lectures will also offer some insight into the careers of some of Loughborough’s leading Early Career Researchers.
In this talk - entitled Voice, Imagination and Action: Media Usage and Visions of Development - Dr Suzina will expose how her previous research has led her to address voice asymmetries and how they suggest that the quest for appropriating platforms of communication constitutes a struggle around the definition of social meanings.
Dr Suzina is based in the Institute for Media and Creative Industries at Loughborough University London. She has an interdisciplinary background with a degree in Journalism, an MA in History and another in Political Science, and a PhD in Social Sciences.
Her research focuses on the relationship between communication, social movements and democracy, with a special interest in Latin American societies. For around 15 years, she has worked in projects related to communication for social change, both in NGOs and corporate foundations, in the fields of children rights and nature conservation.
