Thank you for visiting aidnography!

My name is Tobias Denskus and I am an Associate Professor in Development Studies in the School of Arts and Communication at
Malmö University in Sweden.
I am co-coordinating our MA in Communication for Development, an online blended learning program that for more than 20 years has brought together hundreds of students from all over the world in our Glocal Classroom.

After a critical learning experience at the Peace Studies Department at the University of Bradford, I became a citizen of Aidland, working, living, listening to people and experiencing international peacebuilding in Nepal, humanitarian work in Kabul, Afghanistan and research on German peacebuilding projects in Macedonia.

I completed my PhD at the Institute of Development Studies (IDS) at the University of Sussex and the wonders of transnational aid communities never cease to surprise me. 

I am working on research related to social media, communication and popular representations of aid, aid work & aid workers.
My interview with Humanosphere provides a good overview of the issues that currently interest me most-and why I am passionate about communication for development and change!

There are several ways to get and stay in touch

I can be reached by good old-fashioned E-Mail at 

You can also find me on Twitter or find more professional and academic info on LinkedIn or Academia.edu respectively.

Last but not least, there is also a postal address for postcards, conference invitations or books to suggest for review:
