Biography

Suncana Tuksar, PhD is currently employed as a full-time higher lecturer of English language and literature at Juraj Dobrila University of Pula, Croatia, where she teaches at the Faculty of Interdisciplinary, Italian and Cultural Studies and Department of English Language and Literature (2010 – current). Tuksar has completed MA in English and Literature at Faculty of Philosophy, Department of English, University of Zagreb, Croatia (2000), and received a doctorate on the topic of transmedia (narratological and semiotic) culture and identity communication at J. J. Strossmayer Doctoral School of Communicology in Osijek, Croatia (2020). The expertise comprises of several elements, in short: a) previously researched area in inter/transtextual literary and film representations in the realm of postnarratological paradigm of digital and visual literacy (2014 – current); b) a scholarship grant by SDU Denmark to  investigate narratological and semiotic visual representation in respect to film, culture and identity as a PhD thesis investigation in the social science – communicology area (2018), as well as a MODE summer school at the London University in relation to digital platforms and production (2014); c) author and editor of two monographs - Transgressions; Transmedia Culture and Film (2021) on the topic of post-narratological literary and media paradigm, which reflects the interdisciplinary approach to visual and verbal digital texts (e. g. film, photography, social media, comic book, etc.); Internal Affairs of Literary Figures, on the topics of transculturality and stylistic and rhetoric features of literature and film representations. In addition, Tuksar's peer-reviewed articles speak on behalf of the research and teaching interests in the interdisciplinary approach to texts, language, media visual literacy and communication, as well as to literary criticism, multimodal social semiotics (MDA) and digital technology related to culture and identity (see also Curriculum Vitae).
