Today, I received an e-mail from the chief administrative officer on the Department of Media, Culture, and Communication at New York University Steinhardt, Melissa Lucas, with an exciting piece of news:
Melissa confirmed that I can be attached to the department as a visiting fellow for a couple of months next spring, so from the middle of March to the end of May (the exact dates are still to be determined) I’ll be working from New York City. In NYC, professor Rodney Benson will be my academic “liasons officer” which, e.g., means I’ll follow his course on comparative media systems and give a lecture on Denmark and Danish media. I had the pleasure of meeting Rodney earlier this year when I was in NYC, and I must say that in addition to being an extremely skilled and interesting scholar with an impressive body of work he also seems like a very nice person.
Suffice to say I look very much forward to the stay.
