The Ohio University School of Media Arts & Studies welcomes Patrick Murphy for guest lecture and book presentation on Monday 10/16.
Dr. Patrick D. Murphy is an alumnus of Ohio University and is Associate Dean for Research and Graduate Studies and Associate Professor in the Department of Media Studies and Production in the Klein College of Media and Communication at Temple University. His teaching and research interests include global media, media and the environment, documentary media, media and social justice, ethnographic method, and Latin American media and cultural theory.
Dr. Murphy is the author of The Media Commons: Globalization and Environmental Discourses (University of Illinois Press, 2017), co-editor of Negotiating Democracy: Media Transformation in Emerging Democracies (SUNY 2007) and Global Media Studies (Routledge, 2003).
“Murphy skillfully unpacks the links among the institutions, ideology, and messages of global media systems and our imaginaries of the environment. The result is
a scathing critique of the absorptive capacity of a market-driven, ‘Promethean’ discourse that elides social agency in response to our global ecological tensions.” —Robert Cox, coeditor of The Routledge Handbook of Environment and Communication.
The presentation will take place in Schoonover 380 at 1:00 PM. Books will be available for purchase during the event. For more information, email Nune Grigoryan, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
