Carolijn van Noort

I am a highly motivated and ambitious early-career academic with interdisciplinary research and teaching expertise in the Humanities, Social Sciences, and Asian Studies.

Supported by a University of Otago Doctoral Scholarship, I have been awarded my PhD in Politics from the University of Otago, New Zealand in 2018. I was a Doctoral Candidate at both the Politics and Media, Film and Communication Departments. Upon submitting my dissertation, I was appointed the permanent position of Lecturer in Politics and Public Policy for the University of the West of Scotland. For the last 3.5 years in this position, I gained valuable experience coordinating and teaching modules on BA and MA levels.

I am dedicated to continuous professional learning, exemplified with my position as Fellow of the Higher Education Academy in the UK. In 2020, I have been awarded the Postgraduate Certificate in Academic Practice. As a Lecturer, I competently convey complex theories and concepts by drawing on current affairs. I create a positive and inclusive learning environment using student-centred learning strategies.

My research focuses on the international political communication of rising powers, particularly in relation to identity, international order, infrastructure, and new technologies. I critically apply theories such as strategic narratives, ontological security, and aesthetics in my analyses of media productions in the digital environment.
