Concordia University

Aphrodite Salas is a journalist and professor at Concordia University in Montreal, Canada, where her research focuses on mobile journalism, collaborative journalism with Indigenous communities and more specifically, the decolonization of journalism education. Her most recent work created exclusively with mobile journalism is called Arctic Shift to Clean Energy. The multimedia project shares a story of Inuit climate leadership and was screened alongside Indigenous partners at the UN Climate Conference COP 27 and the UN Biodiversity Conference COP 15. Aphrodite is also part of the management team of a multi-year, 123-million dollar research project called Electrifying Society at Concordia University, where she works in a leadership role related to stakeholder engagement and public policy.

In Perugia, Aphrodite will discuss mojo in the field, both in the context of working with Indigenous communities as well as addressing the technical challenges of shooting in extreme cold. She will also speak on how MOJO can be a tool in the journey from extractive to collaborative journalism.
