Associate ProfessorE-mail: Camilo Pino Diaz
Dr. Diaz Pino is new to West Chester University, and teaches courses in cultural studies of media and media production. He has professional experience in 2D and 3D animation, video editing and post-production, video graphics, and live TV production. All of this happened in New Zealand, and the accents in this work are charming, if largely incomprehensible.
Both his BA, and MA were obtained at the University of Auckland, New Zealand, and he obtained his PhD at the University of Wisconsin, Madison, with research focussing on the circulation of Asian media to Latin America through Mexico City.
He has published work on Cuban and Brazilian animation, as well as on North American comics and Japanese manga. His current publication projects include work on the use of cartoon fandom in political protests, and the positioning of Latin American political figures through social media in the wake of the Trump presidency. His research interests include post-colonial and peripheral media dynamics, cross-cultural media circulation, cultures of production, animation, and kids’ media.
