PhD student Sally Osei-Appiah wins World Universities Network research mobility award
April 4th, 2017
PhD researcher Sally Osei-Appiah has won a World Universities Network (WUN) research mobility award to spend two months at the University of Ghana later this year, where she will be hosted by the School of Information and Communication Studies. Sally will work mainly with Professor Audrey Gadzekpo, who is known internationally for her work on gender, media and governance in African contexts.
Through this grant, Sally will be able to interact with scholars, organizations, politicians and media workers that are central to her doctoral research on the media representations of female politicians in Ghana and Nigeria. In addition, she will contribute her knowledge of political communication, gender and media representation, African media studies, and multimodal discourse analysis to both students and staff at the University of Ghana.
Her visit will also contribute to further developing the School of Media and Communication’s relationship with this leading university in West Africa, a region that is highly relevant to at least three out of six research groups in the School, including political communication, global communication, and visual media and communication.
