Mohan J Dutta is Dean’s Chair Professor of Communication at Massey University in New Zealand. He is the Director of the Center for Culture-Centered Approach to Research and Evaluation (CARE), developing culturally-centered, community-based projects of social change, advocacy, and activism that articulate health as a human right. Mohan Dutta’s research examines the role of advocacy and activism in challenging marginalizing structures, the relationship between poverty and health, political economy of global health policies, the mobilization of cultural tropes for the justification of neo-colonial health development projects, and the ways in which participatory culture-centered processes and strategies of radical democracy serve as axes of global social change.

The Cincinnati Project holds an annual symposium in order to present research findings, discuss issues related to community-engaged research, connect with partners and educators in the local community, and invite a keynote speaker to engage the audience in relevant discussion.
