Pesquisador Visitante Especial – CAPES PVE Ciências Sem Fronteiras
Dr. Michael Goddard (University of Salford, UK) is Senior Lecturer in Media and PGR Coordinator in the School of Arts and Media, University of Salford. Michael’s recent research has centred on Polish and European cinema and audiovisual culture and he was co-editor of Studies in Eastern European Cinema (SEEC). He has just completed a book on the cinema of the Chilean-born filmmaker Raúl Ruiz. He has also been doing research on the fringes of popular music focusing on groups such as The Fall, Throbbing Gristle and Laibach and culminating in two recent edited volumes on noise. Another strand of his research concerns Italian post-autonomist political thought and media theory, particularly the work of Franco Berardi (Bifo). He is now conducting a research project, Radical Ephemera, examining radical media ecologies in film, TV, radio and radical politics in the 1970s.
