Bio

Dr. Gregory Gondwe is an Assistant Professor of Journalism Studies and a 2022-2023 Harvard Visiting Scholar. He studies emerging media trends, particularly in Africa, and their implications on society. Current projects include, how people in Sub-Saharan Africa use social media - particularly ways in which individuals orchestrate online communities, outsmart government censorship and surveillance, and navigate through biased social media algorithms. Some other works include cross-national studies on mis/disinformation in sub-Saharan Africa as they relate to gender, geo-location, age, and media literacy. Dr. Gondwe’s research works have appeared in various peer-reviewed journals, including Digital Journalism, International Journal of Communication, Journalism Practice, Journalism Studies, and African Journalism Studies.

Dr. Gondwe received his degrees in Journalism, Digital Humanities, Political Science, Mass Communication, and Philosophy from the University of Colorado - Boulder, USA; University of Oregon, USA; and St. Augustine University of Tanzania (SAUT) and other Catholic Institutions across the globe. Previously, Dr. Gondwe served as a priest student where he studied philosophy and theology. His work experience includes serving as a journalist, a teacher, and a researcher both in the US and several African countries.
