José Blázquez

Senior lecturer, Bournemouth University
José M. Blázquez is a practitioner and Senior Lecturer in media production. Previously, he held two postdoctoral research positions at the Faculty of Media and Communications at Bournemouth University. His work has been published in academic journals, newspapers and other publishing venues as well as screened and exhibited internationally. His second monograph, ‘Participatory Worlds: The Limits of Audience Participation’, was published by Routledge in October 2023.

Additionally, José has been teaching and supervising students at Bournemouth University (2019- ), University of Nottingham (2016-2019) and the University of Valladolid (2010-2011) and held research-oriented roles at the University of Granada (2010-2012) and the University of Nottingham (2014-2019).

José’s main research interests revolve around the study of audience/citizens participation and the intersection with new technologies and digital media, covering topics such as creative industries and practices (publishing, film, comic, videogame and photography), transmedia and interactive storytelling, game studies and immersive media. He has also been involved in research projects examining the representation of immigration in news, film and literature and the impact of transmedia narratives in creative industries. José worked with Professor Anna Feigenbaum and other colleagues in the AHRC-funded project ‘Comics in the time of COVID-19: How public health messages are communicated through web-based Comics’. He also led the ACE-funded project 'Press Start', in which he examined three transformative gaming practices (machinima, in-game photography and gamics) and the possibilities they offer to learn digital literacy skills. Additionally, José worked on the project 'Digital Narratives of the Amazon' with other BU and international colleagues of the University of Las Americas in Quito, Ecuador. This project, which also involved a Summer School, led to multiple media outputs co-created with students with the aim of helping native communities in the Amazon to preserve and share their culture, language, folklore and history.

José R. Oliver

Reader in Latin American Archaeology, Institute of Archaeology, UCL
As a Reader Latin American Archaeology, my interests are quite broad, covering practically all periods of human history in the Americas, from Paleoamerican to the early colonial period, particularly in South America (Andes and tropical lowlands) and the Caribbean Islands. Since 1992, I directed (PI) archaeological excavations along the Mississippi River (Tennessee, Arkansas), the Gulf Coast of Florida-Alabama, Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, Culebra Island, St. Tomas-Virgin Islands.

Since joining the Institute of Archaeology (1994), I have continued to direct projects in Puerto Rico (Utuado-Caguana Archaeological Project) and northern Dominican Republic (Macorix Archaeological Project) and currently added the margins of the Orinoco river region of Venezuela and Colombia. My research topics are quite diverse, including among others the development of agricultural economies, the rise of middle-range to complex state polities, the archaeology of sacred landscapes (burial caves, rock art, megalithic architecture), the meaning and symbolism of potent/powerful objects (material culture), trade and exchange, and processes of ethnogenesis and culture change.

One particular interest is in ceramic analyses, its classification methods, and theoretical assumptions, and what these tell us about social relations among producers and consumers and about their identities. In my fieldwork, I adopt a reflexive approach to archaeology approach, which involves partnerships with indigenous communities and leaders in jointly building past and recent historical knowledge and enhancing the conservation as well as promotion of tangible and intangible cultural heritage. I teach undergraduate (yrs. 2-3) modules on the archaeology of the Andes and Amazonia and co-teach two graduate (Masters) courses: "Comparative Archaeologies of the Americas-1: First Peoples to Emerging Complexity". and "Comparative Archaeologies of the Americas-2: Empire, States & Settlement." I also teach the 1st year undergraduate core module "Introduction to Social Anthropology".

Joseph Larkin III

Associate Professor of Microbiology and Cell Science, University of Florida
My laboratory investigates the contribution of T lymphocyte subsets and functions in maintaining tolerance, with a specific emphasis on Tregs. We have examined the involvement of Tregs in the prevention of a number of animal models of human disease including type 1 diabetes, lupus, and rheumatoid arthritis. We are currently investigating mechanisms that control Treg function. One such mechanism could be the suppressors of cytokine signaling family of intracellular proteins (SOCS). SOCS proteins regulate cellular responsiveness to cytokines, which are proteins involved in cellular communication. Although it is known that certain cytokines are essential for Treg survival and function, how SOCS proteins contribute to this process are not well understood. One primary focus of our laboratory is to examine the interplay between Tregs and SOCS proteins.
