Ths month we welcome our third Postdoctoral Research fellow, who has joined us from Flinders University. Martin Potter specialises in participatory media practice and is currently the Creative Director and Producer of Big Stories, Small Towns.
Sadly, we say good bye to Postdoctoral Research Fellow Lauren Leigh Hinthorne, who has been appointed into the American Council of Learned Societies (ACLS) Public Fellows program in the United States. Well done, Lauren!
In Student Spotlight we feature CSC master alumna Winnie Emeka-Okolie, who graduated in 2012 and currently works as Assistant Director and communication specialist for the Federal Department of Livestock, Federal Ministry of Agriculture in Nigeria.
Read about the interesting conference entitled "Where are we going and where should we go" that Master of Development Practice students hosted in UQ last week to discuss development in terms of paradigms and practice.
In From the Centre, CfCSC Project Officer Samantha Ryan took part in the EIDOS policy congress this month, talking about the importance of communication for development. The recommendations from the congress are being presented to the Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet.
We'd also like to showcase the practicum work of our CSC master students, which vary from digital storytelling at the State Library of Queensland, undertaking social impact assessment for SEED social enterprise and reviewing the communications strategy of the Vietnamese Government’s Support Program to Respond to Climate Change (SP-RCC).
As always find out what is happening in 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.
