Date Released: Thu, 28 November 2013 09:28 +0200

Professor Anthea Garman is spending the next six weeks in Australia at the University of Wollongong as a visiting lecturer. On Thursday 21 November she presented a seminar on the state of media and democracy in post-apartheid South Africa. Garman teaches writing and editing and media studies in the School and she is the co-director (with Prof Herman Wasserman) of the Mellon-funded research project “Media and citizenship: between marginalisation and participation”.

Read more about Garman's trip on the Wollongong website. Between educating Ozzies about South African media, Garman has found time to be a tourist. She's visited the Wombarra Sculpture Garden rainforest, walked through Hyde Park and looked at the Anzac (Australia New Zealand Army Corps) memorial so far.
