Tribute to Roger Silverstone

Matt Hills

Research output: Contribution to journalComment/debatepeer-review


As a member of the Social Semiotics Advisory Editorial Board, and a former undergraduate and doctoral student of Roger's at Sussex University, it has fallen to me to write this short piece; partly a tribute to Roger's inspiring, human qualities and partly a recognition of his place in the annals of media studies. Roger was sadly taken from us in 2006—a sudden and shocking loss for his family, friends, colleagues, and for his current students at the London School of Economics (LSE), as well as for all the many, many people whose lives he had helped to change for the better across his time as a researcher and teacher of media and communications.
