CCSC Newsletter

July 2013


Welcome to the newsletter for the
Centre for Communication & Social Change

July has been an exciting month for the Centre. On Thursday 18th, ten of our Master of Communication for Social Change students graduated, taking with them knowledge, experience and another perspective on communication. Congratulations to all of them!

Among our graduates we wanted to tell you Mary Warus' triumphal story of resilience and strength which has inspired all of us.

The CfCSC has also been involved in the Australian South Sea Islander project through our Project Officer Samantha Ryan who played an active role developing storytelling videos that will be played at the Queensland State Library next month. Don’t miss out your opportunity to know more about this hidden chapter in Queensland’s history.

In this edition of Student Spotlight we focus on one of our alumni, Jaime Manalo from the Philippines, who graduated from the CSC master on 2011. Get to know Jaime’s work in the PhilRice and how his master degree at UQ has enhanced his impressive career. We’re so proud Jaime!

In From the Centre you can meet some of our domestic and international PhD students and find out about their exciting work from food security, participatory video to media advocacy and transdisciplinary research for development in Australia and overseas.

As always get a blurb on what is happening on our arena in From the Field and get the information you were looking for on current work opportunities and volunteering experience in Australia and international contexts in Opportunities.

We appreciate all feedback about the newsletter and input on what you would like to see in the future. Please contact Claudia Sepulveda with your thoughts.

Until our next newsletter!
