Media Activism & Social Movements

This interactive & discussion-oriented course provides an introduction to the politics & tactics underlying five broad categories of media activism: media interventions at the levels of representation, labor relations, policy, strategic communication, & “alternative” media making. The course will rely on both a survey of the existing scholarship on media activism, as well as close analyses of actual activist practices within both old & new media. As a class, we will examine a wide-range of digital media as well as local, national, and global media activist institutions.
