    Dr Dmitri Zakharine is an internationally active scholar, particularly known for analyzing processes of transmission and displacement of nonverbal communicative patterns in society and across societies. The scholar’s research has its theoretical bases in history, sociology and media studies. The PhD (published in Munich, 1995) examined how baroque innovations in the fields of visual art, combinatorics, and mnemonics shaped the profile of Slavic grammars. The postdoctoral thesis (published in Konstanz, 2005) focused on the history of verbal and nonverbal communication in the historic contexts of Eastern and Western Europe. The current research refers to the history of broadcasting cultures in interwar Britain, Germany and the USSR. Zakharine has graduated from Moscow State University (Russia) and then from the University of Mannheim (Germany). He has been teaching and doing research at the Universities of Mannheim, Frankfurt am Main, Bielefeld, Konstanz, Zurich, Charles University Prague and King’s College of London. He possesses a teaching allowance for Cultural Sociology, New History, Russian Language and Literature.
