Richard is a researcher working on the practices and normative ethics of journalism of conflict. His current work explores the work of journalists reporting on conflict and its effects in Sudan, where he is interested in the role of affect/emotion and tactics of coping with risk by journalists working in conflict contexts, as well as practical ethical tensions that occur while reporting on the effects of the country’s war.
Richard has previously been a DAAD scholar in the conflict studies program at the Willy Brandt School of Public Policy, and previous research has included work on media framing of the 2011 famine in Somalia and the politics of collective memory and archive-producing research in Kitgum, Northern Uganda. Richard’s research at the Center for Media at Risk will explore the affective dimensions of media intimidation and practices of ‘affective’ resistance amongst journalists working in situations of insecurity.
