Program Overview

Program Description:
This course explores common current definitions of grassroots media and their implications (e.g. 'alternative' media, 'citizens' media, 'tactical' media, 'social movement' media). It then examines a number of self-governed media projects in the USA, France and elsewhere. Examples will include Occupy movement media, media uses in the global anti-apartheid movement (1950-1994), social movement media in the Arab region, and protest media in France.

Students in groups of 2-3 produce a short video concerned with social justice/cultural diversity and shorter "on-the-spot" videos as practices of citizen journalism. The course studio component teaches students the necessary technical skills to make critical-situational media.
