Dear Friends

Welcoming PhD students and ECRs - Please circulate within your networks.

The Alfred Deakin Institute, Deakin University will be hosting Dr Gavan Titley, senior lecturer in media studies at Maynooth University, to deliver a PhD/ECR masterclass that explores the public discourse of free speech in post-racial societies.

Date and location: Wednesday 18th December 2019, 1pm-4pm at Deakin Downtown, Melbourne
Registration information: students must send through a brief (100-200) description of their PhD project including information about their candidature stage
Contact personnel: Dr Sherene Idriss [sherene.idriss at deakin.edu.au] by Monday 9 Dec 2019
This is a free event, afternoon tea will be available.

Gavan  researches the politics of race, racism and multiculturalism in European politics, freedom of speech and ideas of 'hate speech' in digital media environments, the future of public service media, and the integration of social theory to media theory. Gavan's research is primarily focused on the study of racisms in Europe, with an emphasis on the transnational construction of public discourse, the production of racism in hybrid media systems, the politics of 'post-racial' public spheres, and discourses for the 'management of difference' in media and public life. He is also interested in the translation and adaptation of political philosophy in media and communications theory, and the status of mediated communications in social and political theory. More recently he has been researching institutional and actor understandings of free speech and 'hate speech' in connective media networks.

His past publications include The Crises of Multiculturalism: Racism in a Neoliberal Age, written with Alana Lentin (Zed Books 2011), and the co-edited National Conversations: Cultural Diversity and Public Service Media (Intellect Books 2014) and After Charlie Hebdo: Terror, Racism, Free Speech (Zed Books 2017).  Racism and Media will be published by Sage Publications in spring 2019.
