A Q & A with Ryerson PhD Candidate and FCAD Contract Lecturer, Gabriele Aroni.
Having attended the University of Florence in his home country of Italy and United Kingdom’s Oxford Brookes University to pursue masters degrees in Architecture and Digital Media production respectively, it’s safe to say Ryerson ComCult student and PhD candidate, Gabriele Aroni has plenty of international experience.
In May, Gabriele presented his paper, “The Limits of Copyright Law in digital Game Photography” at a conference at the University of Coimbria in Portugal.
