About the Speaker
Sara García Santamaría is an Associate Professor at Universitat Jaume I and Universitat Blanquerna – Ramon Llull in Spain. She holds a Doctorate in Journalism Studies from the University of Sheffield (UK), where her research explored how the Cuban state-run media constructs the role of the people in public debate. Having completed her Ph.D., García Santamaría became a research fellow at the Annenberg School for Communication, University of Pennsylvania, in 2018, leading a Joint Digital Rights and Internet Freedom Research & Advocacy Project. Her doctoral and postdoctoral work emphasizes the importance of overcoming binary discourses and accounting for the social complexity of a changing media environment in Cuba. CARGC Special Report “Beyond “Technological Exception”: Emerging Debates in Cuban Independent Journalism” represents a continuation of her work, particularly in light of the shifting and volatile media environment that Cubans and Cuban journalists are currently experiencing.
