Fellowship Inaugural Lecture: Dr Ana Cristina Suzina - Voice, imagination and action
About this event
Voice, imagination and action: media usage and visions of development
The development of digital technologies creates an illusion of equality of voices, making us believe that anyone can express their views and reach audiences anywhere. Scholars and practitioners in different regions of the world unfold ideas such as the capacity of reaching massive audiences through individual communication, the elimination of filters such as mainstream media to express ideas, the expansion of exchanges through a networked society, among others. Dr Ana Cristina Suzina argues that digital disruption reveals a deeper level of inequality, highlighting the fundamental question of parity of participation in the search of social justice.
In this presentation, they will expose how their previous research has led them 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. They will propose a three-dimensional analytical charter in which they relate the expression of political voice to the constitution of political imagination and the articulation of political action, a debate that is in the heart of their current research.
This prestigious lecture series, organised for Research Staff in association with the Loughborough University Research Staff Association, showcases Loughborough University’s Research Fellows, who will present their cutting-edge research and outline their career to-date. The lectures will offer some insight into the careers of some of Loughborough’s leading Early Career Researchers, and will be followed by the opportunity to network with colleagues from across the University.
