Fausto Barlocco.

Fausto Barlocco, a graduate student in the Social Sciences Department, University of Loughborough, UK, is planning to carry out Ph.D. research aimed at studying the impact of media on the Kadazan/Dusun population of Sabah, particularly focusing on an area, probably around Penampang, in order to assess the results of the Malaysian nation-building project put into effect by the central government through the media and to highlight its successes and failures, as well as its more or less unexpected side-effects and forms of resistance. He intends to base his research on a period of 12, or possibly 18 months, starting in July 2005, about 3 of which will be spent in Kota Kinabalu and the rest in rural areas. At the moment he is carrying out bibliographic research, looking at the ethnographic, political and historical sources, as well as the general literature on media anthropology and nation-building.
