Media / Technology
Working in different contexts — and mainly in communications departments at the University of Texas at Austin and at the University of Leicester – I did quite a bit of work on international media, especially of the post-communist period, published in places like Javnost/The Public, The Journal of International Commiuniication, Convergence, and elsewhere. I was an early adopted of the advances in online teaching, and even if I am not a huge fan of the big move to Zoom that took place in Covid-19 period, I believe in the great advantages of technology in democratizing global education.
My interest in technology — from point of view of how it affects and assists the global circulation of international cinema — resulted in the edited collection DIGITAL DISRUPTION: CINEMA MOVES ONLINE (2012, with Stuart Cunningham), in a number of talks, and in pieces that were written and published later and dealing with the move of cinema online, with matters of digital archiving and the disappearance of home video.
