Anna’s thesis examines how parties to conflict construct the spatio-temporal domain in the absence of lived experience. Her thesis is multidisciplinary, engaging with concepts of communications and critical theory, time geography, and media studies to examine how parties differentially enact, conceive and communicate about conflict, based on their respective locations across space and time.
