Introducing UM’s SoC New Faculty

UM’s School of Communication welcomed 4 new faculty this academic year, and the South Florida Business Journal was kind enough to consider us and our research and creative interests as integral to southern Florida’s economic future. Here’s the full article.

Also I love this intro. It would be wonderful if Clay and my serious games got on President Shalala’s radar!

[quote]Two of the new UM faculty members are notable for being from the Parsons The New School of Design in New York. It’s also notable that some of the new hires have done research in the area of political campaigns and social issues, which probably interest UM President Donna Shalala because she served as secretary of health and human services for eight years in the Clinton administration.[/quote]

One correction to the article: my title is actually Lecturer of Interactive Media (in the department of Journalism and Media Management).

Paul Amelchenko, Juliana Fernandes, Lien Tran and Clay Ewing are the newest faculty at UM’s School of Communication.
