Between talks in Dunedin and Brisbane, I had a chance to visit the University of Melbourne and meet a few faculty members there. On February 15, 2012, I met with Dr. Ingrid Volkmer, Director of the Media and Communication program at the School of Culture and Communication there. In addition, I met with Prof. Nikos Papastergiadis, Professor in the same school. Both are extremely active scholars, producing particularly interesting research (follow the links provided for details). We found potential future connections, and I look forward to following up on the conversations.
The buildings at the University of Melbourne are like those elsewhere in the city in that they are eclectic in design, often combining multiple elements in ways I have not seen previously. A pleasure to see!
