Welcome from the Head
Dr Filippo Gilardi
Head of the School of International Communications
Research has never been just a career for me, rather it is a passion that drives me. I have mostly researched in five key areas including journalism and communications, artificial intelligence and digital transformations in news media, media and information literacy, digital divide and digital inclusion, and sustainable development. To date, I have contributed over 25 peer reviewed journal articles, 14 book chapters, 3 edited books and three special journal issues. My published research work has mostly covered the countries in the Global South. My transnational research continues to grow as currently I am working on many international publication projects, which include: A book project – Environmental Journalism in the Global South (Eds.), Two Special Issues by Routledge’s Journalism Practice – ‘Media Discourses of Marginalized Communities in the Multicultural Societies’ & ‘Sustainable Journalism in the Global South’. Last but not least, my current international research and publication projects cover topics including media and information literacy, financial sustainability and business models for news media, sustainable journalism, and sustainable development.
