Nattawat Wongwilatnurak

I am interested in the social belief about ghosts and spirits presented in Thai television drama programmes, and I have got a lot of useful advice from Dr. Lee Barron, and Dr. Claire Nally who are my superiors.

I graduated from the Faculty of Communication Arts, majoring in Broadcasting, Bangkok University, Thailand. Then, I received an M.A. in Entertainment Management and Production from the Faculty of Communication Arts, Department of Entertainment Management and Production, Bangkok University. Upon finishing my study, I have worked as a full-time instructor in the School of Communication Arts, Department of Broadcasting, Bangkok University. I have taught courses in Broadcasting, such as Scriptwriting for Broadcasting, Broadcast News Writing and Reporting, and Television Set Design. Besides teaching, I have also responsible for many projects of the university. For example, I was an advisor for training people from Television Channel 5 of Thailand in scriptwriting, field working and producing a documentary.

As for research, I have some research and academic articles published in many academic journals, for example, “The Reflection of Postmodernism in Thai Television Programmes”, “Intertextuality in the Entertainment Industry”, “Participatory Communication in Online Social Networking”, “Personal Branding on Social Network”, “Retro Marketing in Entertainment Business”, and “Marketing Communication Strategies on Twitter”.
