Nicholas Turner recently began a PhD program at UC San Diego's Communications Department. They came to UCSD with a deep interest in researching the structure and mechanics of power within corporate global entertainment. Nicholas is curious about imagined utopian economies and geographies such as a decolonized, anti-racist, anti-discriminatory entertainment industry; post nation-state political organization; and what role art and culture might play in creating these utopias. Other interests of theirs include collective and indigenous rights; narrative ownership; and global development. Their recent project, AnOther Story, supports the efforts of Palestinian artists to tell stories to their own communities and to audiences around the globe.
