Marco Jacquemet

Professor and Chair

I teach courses in communication and culture, intercultural communication, geographies of communication, and justice and social change. My scholarship focuses on the communicative mutations produced by the circulation of migrants and media idioms in the Mediterranean area. I am currently writing a book based on this research, called Transidioma: Language and Power in the 21st Century, to be published by Blackwell in 2015. I am also present in Italian media activist networks, where I investigate the link between media and  power.
