The MITN Postgrad/Early Career Research group are pleased to announce that the University of Bologna have formally joined alongside Warwick and Monash universities, represented by Gaia Aragrande and Beatrice Spallaccia. The new reps have already proposed new research clusters around gender and media, and will be hosting the MITN Postgrad Summer School on 12-14 July 2017.
