    Personal profile


    Emmanuel Effiong Johnson is a Nigerian researcher, filmmaker and poet. His background is Media and Communications and he is committed to research that borders on the theme of personal experience.

The most significant and reoccurring focus of Emmanuel's work is the exploration of personal (lived) experience, and how people are affected or/and transformed by events, situations and experiences. He is passionate about creative methods of research, like film, because it furthers expression, of self and ideas, encourages accessibility and engages with people in and out of the academe. Through his research practise, he aims to reach a wide audience of people, both academics and non-academics, while promoting values of self-expression and authenticity about human lived experience.
