Biography

Dr. Sofia Karatza's work brings together intercultural communication, sensory ethnography, and film to explore the potential of senses—and extensions of them through digital media—to create and construct alternative socio-aesthetic places in which everyday life, otherwise seemingly agent-less and mundane, becomes meaningful. Dr. Karatza is originally from Greece and Cyprus; she joined the Coastal Carolina University faculty in 2015.
