Paola Sartoretto completed a doctoral degree in Media and Communication in 2015 at Karlstad University in Sweden and has been a post-doctoral fellow at the Nordic Institute of Latin American Studies at Stockholm University between 2018 and 2020. She has been conducting research on the interplay between collective organisation, social mobilisation and communication, focusing on the appropriation of digital media by activists and social movements and, recently, on digital media and the construction of collective memory among activist collectives. Sartoretto has also been teaching and supervising at Swedish Universities since 2009, with extensive experience teaching courses in research methods, Global Media Studies, Media Activism, Communication and Social Change, and Latin American Studies.
