The School of Communication, Journalism and Marketing - 2018 Seminar series starts with a 'double bang'! Two recent research projects which are equally enthralling.

Dr Heather Kavan has a personal interest in "When Dissidents use "Strategic Non-Violence" on Scholars (instead of Dictators)"

  • In 2016, four academics from across the world made privatecontact. All had a similar story – they had published research that contradicted the claims of a dissident movement, and a series of strange events followed.
  • Heather was one of these academics - hear her discuss her discoveries, including a training manual for dissidents.

Dr Franco Vaccarino continues deeper into his reseearch in Pasifika communities: Navigating Indigenous Community spaces: "Talanoa".

  • Indigenous community engagement is grounded on partnerships that respect and recognise all stakeholders' knowledge, strengths and needs.
  • Culturally sensitive and appropriate research methodologies need to be used to ensure that indigenous communities are included in the process, rather than marginalised.
  • His presentation will focus on Talanoa, a common research method applied in the South Pacific.
