Archetti presenterer seg på engelsk:
Please tell us about your background?
– I have always had many academic interests and I particularly enjoy being exposed to new ideas. I have a BA Honours in Politics, an MA in International Communication and a PhD that covered the crossroad between Political Communication, International Communication and Journalism.
All of my research can be said to be about Political Communication, which I tend to approach as “communication in politics” in its broadest sense. I am particularly interested in how the small details of communication in everyday life contribute, over time and little by little, to changing the world.
Topics I have been writing about are: the impact of communication technologies on politics and society; international journalism and foreign correspondence; the role of the media in the phenomenon of extremism and terrorism; public diplomacy 2.0; communication in conflict and war; the use of creative writing in research.
What will be the focus of your research at IMK?
– I am delighted about the opportunity to work together within IMK with so many new colleagues researching about such a stimulating variety of communication areas.
I will be part of the new POLKOM centre. Political Communication is a relatively new area of study in Norway, so it is both exciting and rewarding to be able to contribute to its establishment.
