Political Scientist Roman Gerodimos to Return to Salzburg Global as Visiting Fellow

Principal lecturer in global current affairs at Bournemouth University to spend two weeks at Schloss Leopoldskron Roman Gerodimos in the Max Reinhardt Library at Schloss Leopoldskron

Salzburg Global is pleased to announce long-standing Salzburg Global Media Academy faculty member Roman Gerodimos will return to Schloss Leopoldskron later this fall.

The political scientist, writer and academic will be a Visiting Fellow between November 18 and December 3.

During his stay, Gerodimos, a principal lecturer in global current affairs at Bournemouth University, will give an evening talk on "The New World Disorder: Globalization, Technology and Democracy in the 21st Century."

He will also spend part of his stay carrying out research at the Max Reinhardt Library and writing a feature on the history of Schloss Leopoldskron.

Gerodimos' research focuses on civic and digital engagement, the challenges facing democratic governance due to globalization and digitization, and the role of public space and civic media in facilitating urban coexistence.

He is currently producing his third short film - Essence. This film is based on an essay written in 1967 by Austrian pianist Paul Badura-Skoda entitled "Look to the Guiding Stars!"

Gerodimos has already launched a teaser trailer for the film and has started an Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign to cover expenses.

Last month, Gerodimos was one of several Salzburg Global Fellows to speak at the Pune International Literary Festival. He also had the chance to screen his first film At the Edge of the Present.
