May/June 2018                                                              

Hello and welcome to our latest newsletter for 2018!
As the first semester comes to an end, the Centre for Communication and Social Change (CfCSC) is delighted to wish students and colleagues a well-deserved break, as we all look forward to the start of the second semester.
In this edition of our newsletter we congratulate Dr Kylie Navuku for being conferred her PhD. Kylie’s fascinating study explores the effectiveness of famous fictional characters in raising awareness about CSC thematic areas such as the environment, health, and the status of women. We interviewed Kylie to share her motivation and experience in doing a PhD research at the CfCSC.

We were also fortunate to speak to Mr Mohamad Fiky Herdiansyah, a CSC Master student, who completed a practicum placement experience at the APNIC Foundation.

In another story in the ‘Student Spotlight’ section, we share the fascinating work of Ms Wichitra Yasya, a 2009 CSC graduate, in Indonesia.  Wichitra is a PhD candidate and Lecturer in Communication Science at the Universitas Muhammadiyah Jakarta, Indonesia.  She is also the founder, director and programme manager at YRKK, a non-profit organisation that focuses on improving the quality of early childhood education through capacity building and improving access and linkages to early childhood educators and relevant stakeholders.

In the ‘News from the Centre’ section, we caught up with Centre Associate A/Professor Eric Louw to discuss some of his more recent work on politics, media, and communicating social change.  A/Professor Eric Louw has researched and published extensively on subjects relevant to the work of the CfCSC.

Be sure to check out the ‘June Opportunities’ page for information on a number of work, conferences and learning opportunities.
We are always eager to hear your ideas and feedback about our newsletter and the work of the Centre so if you would like to contact us please send an email to
