Brian Dolber, Assistant Professor of Mass Communication, presented his paper “Tagging Manila: Street Art, Hope Labor and Nation Branding in the Philippines” at the National Communication Association Convention in Chicago, IL on November 21. Dr. Dolber’s paper was based on research conducted during his trip to Manila in February, 2014 with the support of the StAR International Faculty Travel Grant. It was part of a panel, “Transnational Markets, National Icons: Nation Branding in the Global Media Marketplace,” chaired by Sarah Banet-Weiser, Director of the School of Communication at USC Annenberg. The panel is being solicited by publishers to contribute to produce an edited volume on nation branding, to be edited by Christina Ceisel, Visiting Assistant Professor at Hamilton College.
