Members of the Love and Rage Media Collective will give a presentation and facilitate an interactive discussion about corporate media, independent media, citizen and grassroots journalism and the Love and Rage media initiative.
A short history of Love and Rage as well as examples of grassroots and independent media will be discussed. Students will learn about the ins and outs of independent media and learn the skills they can use to start reporting, interviewing and writing as grassroots media activists. Students will also critically look at mainstream and corporate media with a specific focus on the coverage of the U.S. military bombing of the Doctors Without Borders hospital in Kunduz, Afghanistan that occurred last week.
If you want to have a more critical lens to look at corporate media, or if you want to actually “be the media” through independent, alternative and grassroots journalism, then this is the class for you.
Please join us tonight, October 8 at 7:00pm for class.
