Student video featuring Robin Cox's research released

As part of the SSHRC Storytellers contest, MA in Intercultural and International Communication student Brett Blair and School of Peace and Conflict Management Prof. Robin Cox teamed up to create a video about Cox's research.

Through a compelling video piece, Blair showcases the work of SSHRC Doctoral Fellowship-funded colleague Cox, who studies youth empowerment as part of disaster recovery. Emphasizing the research’s model of participatory, creative engagement, Blair’s video also explores the increasingly-vocal youth demographic and its impact on shaping disaster policy and practice. The video was released this week. Watch the video here.

Blair received a prize valued at $3,000, an invitation to a special communications workshop at Congress 2013 in Victoria and the chance to deliver a featured presentation at this year’s World Social Science Forum in Montreal. Learn more about the Storytellers contest here.
