Profile

Giuliana has been working at the University of Sheffield in a variety of roles related to digital media. She was a lecturer in Digital Society at the Department of Sociological Studies in 2015-2016, and in 2017 she worked on digital communication in crisis situations as Research Associate of the Information school.

Prior to her involvement with the University of Sheffield, Giuliana taught Sociology and Media at the University of Glasgow from 2009 to 2014.

She carried out her doctoral studies at the Glasgow University Media Group, where she was involved in research projects analysing production and effects of traditional media, new dynamics and approaches to digital media, and the role of the media in shaping conflicts and social beliefs.

Research

Giuliana’s general research interest is in the role of the media in shaping social change. She is interested in analysing mediated communication dynamics, to unveil how media information can disrupt or harmonise social life when multiple perspectives are at stake. She aims to contribute research for the implementation of communication strategies for social transformation in the digital age, particularly in the following areas:

  • Social media management by institutions and social groups;
  • Audience analysis, formation and transformation of beliefs;
  • The role of traditional and new media in transforming conflicts.
