The Institute for Human Security and Social Change has been collaborating with researchers at the University of the South Pacific (USP) on Developmental Leadership Program research project Digital Feminism in Fiji. This research explores how feminists and women’s rights activists in Fiji are using digital technologies for advocacy and activism. USP researchers Glen Finau, Romitesh Kant, Jope Tarai and Jason Titifanue are at the forefront of research on the use of digital technologies in Fiji.
As part of this research collaboration, the Institute is thrilled to announce the appointment of Glen, Romitesh, Jope and Jason as La Trobe Honorary Research Associates in recognition of their significant contribution to this research collaboration.
In addition, we are looking forward to welcoming the USP research team to La Trobe in late 2016 as Visiting Research Fellows, thanks to a visiting fellowship grant from La Trobe’s Transforming Human Societies research focus area.
La Trobe Honorary associate appointments are made in recognition of the significant contribution to the Faculty made by individuals in one or more of the following areas: student teaching and research or other aspects of clinical education in the Faculty of Health Sciences; considerable achievement in the areas of professional practice, collaborative research or consultation relevant to the Faculty; distinguished service to the Faculty which normally would be apart from any office which is, or has been held by the nominee.
