What's "In the Works" for James Pamment?
During a regular year, James Pamment serves as assistant professor of Media & Communication Studies at Karlstad University in Sweden. This year, however, isn't a regular year for Dr. Pamment.
In addition to his CPD Research Fellowship (a non-resident position for 2013-15), Pamment is currently a post-doc at the University of Texas at Austin (2013-16) and a research fellow at the Department of International Development at Oxford (2014).
His current research projects include exploring the intersections between public diplomacy and international development, a project on aid transparency, and a book on British soft power. On February 27, 2014, Pamment and his colleague Professor Karin Wilkins (University of Texas at Austin), will co-host with CPD a one-day symposium at the University of Southern California, "Public Diplomacy & Development Communications: Intersections, Overlaps and Challenges." They are currently accepting paper proposals through October 31. For more information on the open call for papers, click here.
