Dear friends,

As our 2017 academic calendar kicks off, we welcome new students and colleagues, and look forward to a great year of research, teaching and collaboration. We announce the departure of our excellent Communication and Research Officer Laura McDowell. She is off to Timor-Leste for some community radio adventures. We thank Laura for her amazing contribution to the research, teaching and engagement at the Centre. We also welcome Steven Sam as our Research and Engagement Officer.

Welcome to our first newsletter for 2017!

In News from the Centre, we are excited to announce the publication of “Feminist Activism and Digital Networks: Between Empowerment and Vulnerability” the latest title in our Palgrave Studies in CSC book series. Authored by Aristea Fotopoulou, this new text is highly relevant to students, researchers and practitioners who wish to engage in critical discussion on feminist and queer activism in the interactive digital era. We are also  pleased to announce that our highly rated (see review) book in the CSC field “Interrogating the Theory and Practice of Communication for Social Change” written by A/Prof Pradip Thomas and A/Prof Elske van de Fliert is now available at a lower price in softcover.
We interview Daniela Bandelli, a PhD graduate of the Centre, on her new book “Femicide, Gender and Violence Discourses and Counterdiscourses in Italy". This fascinating and provocative book critically engages with feminist gender-based violence discourses in Italy through the lens of Foucault’s theory of ‘Biopower’ and social movement voices.

In  Student Spotlight we profile our CSC Master’s student Enggar Paramita who completed her practicum placement at the Australian Centre for International Agricultural Research (ACIAR) “Smallholder Cattle Enterprise Development” project in Timor Leste for three weeks in February, 2017. This project is a collaborative endeavour between Australian (UQ) and Timorese agricultural and communication academics and professionals that is funded by the Australian Centre for International Agricultural Research (ACIAR). Enggar facilitated digital storytelling activities with farmers and young people in Aidabaleten village, Bobonaro district.

Finally, we welcome the first cohort of students in our brand new  32-unit Master’s program this semester.
