Communicating Across Borders

 

globalsport project

The five-year European Research Council-funded GLOBALSPORT project explores how masculinity, the body, nationalism, hope, precarity, and belonging were intermeshed through an exploration of the migration of professional and aspiring professional athletes in the sport industries, principally from the Global South to the Global North, in three world sports, namely soccer football, rugby union, and cricket.

UN Development Programme

UNDP works in about 170 countries and territories, helping to achieve the eradication of poverty, and the reduction of inequalities and exclusion. We help countries to develop policies, leadership skills, partnering abilities, institutional capabilities and build resilience in order to sustain development results.

 

Eye Foundation of America

The Eye Foundation of America's (EFA) mission is to go where the need is greatest - often rural and remote areas of developing countries where there is no medical care or where the cost of care is prohibitive.  

Sport in the cold war

Sport has long been linked with politics, but never more so than during the Cold War. In this highly precarious time, nations and peoples around the world used sport to promote their political, social, and economic development. Yet, for all its obvious ideological freighting, sport in this period reflected a complex integration of commerce, celebrity, trans-regional and trans-national fan loyalties.

Lindsay joined our multinational research project on Sport in the Cold War to help me and my Co-Director, both novices in communication, get a handle on how we could disseminate information about our events and findings. She did a superb job. Her advice was always precise, articulate, targeted and effective. Over a twelve month period, her ideas flexed with new situations. Her work is big-picture and nuanced at the same time - and we would have been lost without her.”

Lindsay’s ability to quickly and efficiently gather information and turn it into heartfelt human interest stories is outstanding. She also learns quickly and assimilates knowledge extremely well.
