Join us for a panel held together with King’s Centre for Strategic Communications, and learn more about the emerging field of strategic communications!
Topics like propaganda, public relations and even corporate communications often cause some confusion, however, King’s College is one of the few universities in the world to teach strategic communications (SC) as an MA.
King’s Centre for Strategic Communications (KCSC) aims to be the leading global centre of expertise on SC. Led by internationally renowned experts from the Department of War Studies and partners from the policy and practitioner communities, it provides practical solutions to contemporary communication challenges rooted in cutting-edge academic research. The Centre provides intellectual rigour and clarity of thinking to enhance understanding of an increasingly dynamic information environment.
Three academics from KCSC will be joining us, in addition to a few War Studies alumni, who are currently working in the SC field.
Dr Francesca Granelli is a teaching fellow at the Department of War Studies. Before joining, she spent 15 years working in the private sector before returning to academic life. Dr Granelli holds a BA (Hons) in Geography and Psychology from the University of Manchester, alongside her MA in International Relations and PhD in War Studies from King’s College London. Her doctoral thesis is the first full-length study of the relationship between trust and revolution.
Dr Ofer Fridman is a Lecturer in War Studies and Director of operations at the King’s Centre for Strategic Communications. Prior to his academic career, Dr Fridman served in the Israeli Defence Forces. He holds the degrees of BA (Military History and Security Studies) from Hebrew University; MA (Counter-Terror and Homeland Security) from Interdisciplinary Center Herzliya; and PhD (Politics) from University of Reading.
