Emma's CV

PROFILE

A creative, proactive researcher and associate lecturer who is looking to progress her career as an lecturer in communications. I have 4 years experience in teaching at undergraduate and postgraduate level, where I have designed and convened modules. I have both research and teaching experience in the field of media and communications. In particular, I am interested in cross-cultural research and teaching; my PhD research explores the cross-cultural migrations and communications of Lithuanian, Latvian and Estonian artists, while I also have a teaching qualification where I focused on the subject of cross-cultural methods of teaching in Higher Education. My achievements in this area have required persistence, determination and, most particularly, good communication and written skills.


EDUCATION

September 2012 - September 2016 PhD Media and Communications, Goldsmiths, University of London
Pass with Revisions
Title: ‘Homes on the Move: Transborder Communities of Artistic Practice in the European Union’.
Supervisor: Prof. Marianne Franklin, Goldsmiths, University of London.
Synopsis: This ESRC-funded research explores the geographic mobilities of artist communities from Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia. It shows their different types of movement out from these three countries across the EU and how they then create multi-cross-cultural networks. This population requires investigation because it demonstrates a different type of migration out of Eastern Europe, compared to unskilled migrants that are mentioned frequently in the British press. These artist communities have not been researched substantially and, yet, they bring up new issues and pose interesting questions about migration, mobility and cross-cultural communications.
September 2010 - September 2011 MA Transnational Communications and Global Media, Goldsmiths, University of London.
Pass with Merit
Dissertation mark: Pass with Distinction. Title: ‘Creative Migration of Eastern European Artists: Crossing Artistic, Cultural and Territorial Boundaries’.
Elected modules: ‘Text and Image’ and ‘Public Culture and Everyday Life’.

September 2006 - July 2009 BA Journalism, Media and Cultural Studies, Cardiff University.
First Class Honours
Dissertation mark: Distinction. Title: ‘Living Spaces: Art Exhibitions as “living” spaces: An exploration into why people visit art exhibitions, the rewards and educational benefits’.
Elected modules: ‘Mass Media and Communications’, ‘Popular Culture’, ‘Cultural Agency: Theory and Practice’ ‘Film: Theory and History’, ‘Documentary Photography’.


FUNDING
I secured a three-year funding grant (2012-2015) from the Economic and Social Science Research Council (ESRC). This means I have experience in applying for and securing external funding.
