Jeanti St Clair Lecturer 02 6620 3126
School of Arts and Social Sciences Ms I am Lecturer in Journalism in the School of Arts and Social Sciences at Southern Cross University. My research focuses on journalism practice as a profession and on journalism curriculum design, particularly on authenticity and experiential learning. I have come to academia with a broad and lengthy professional practice as a journalist in radio, print and online media. I continue this practice as the arts critic for ABC Radio North Coast and have broadcast and/or published over 150 reviews between 2011 and 2017. My research publications are listed on my personal research page. I am involved in an interdisciplinary practice-based research which draw in my radio documentary background with place-making and audio design practices, and which is related to my PhD research. My research publications are listed on this profile. Currently, I am producing a documentary feature film about artists in inner-city Melbourne in the 1980s and 1990s. I am also exploring collaborative multi-disciplinary research that engages my radio documentary background with place-making and audio design practices as the focus of my PhD studies and other research. In 2016, this included an extended locative audio walk through Nimbin, the site of the 1973 alternative cultural Aquarius Festival. The walk is available on the Soundtrail website and app. A second locative walk was also created in 2016 with my Making Radio students on the Lismore campus of SCU. The Cubewalk Soundtrail explores narratives of success, passion and support among the university's staff and student populations. Since 2015, I have been producing a documentary feature film about artists in inner-city Melbourne in the 1980s and 1990s. jeanti.stclair@scu.edu.au BA(Deakin), GradCertAP(SCU), MA(Journalism)(UTS) Jeanti BA(Deakin), GradCertAP(SCU), MA(Journalism)(UTS) Lismore
