- Author BiographyNick Couldry is Professor of Media, Communications and Social Theory in the Department of Media and communications at LSE. As a sociologist of media and culture, he approaches media and communications from the perspective of the symbolic power that has been historically concentrated in media institutions. He is interested in how media and communications institutions and infrastructures contribute to various types of order (social, political, cultural, economic, ethical). His work has drawn on, and contributed to, social, spatial, democratic and cultural theory, anthropology, and media and communications ethics. His analysis of media as 'practice' has been widely influential. He is the author or editor of 11 books and many journal articles and book chapters. Nick taught previously in the LSE Departments of Sociology and Media and Communications (2001-2006), and before rejoining LSE in September 2013 was joint Head of the Department of Media and Communications at Goldsmiths, University of London. He has been chair of the Philosophy Theory and Critique division of the ICA and vice-chair of the Mediatization Temporary Working Group of ECREA. He has held visiting positions at universities in University of Pennsylvania, University of Stockholm, RMIT Melbourne, Roskilde University, Sodertorn University, Stockholm, University of Technology Sydney, and University of Toulouse. In June 2014 Nick was appointed Adjunct Professor in the School of Media and Communication at RMIT, Melbourne, Australia. In 2014 Nick has given invited lectures and seminars in Brazil, Chile, Holland (Utrecht, Gronigen), Portugal, Sweden, and the USA (Boulder, Yale).
