About the class:
The Media for Social Change course surveyed new media from a lens of personal transformation and artistic activism as a means to create positive social change. This course examined the uses of mass media in contemporary society worldwide–news, advertising, propaganda, censorship, and power–and consider the tremendous potential this medium has to subvert and transcend these uses–through art, activism, collaboration, transparency, global accessibility, and citizen journalism–as a powerful tool in hands of a technologically savvy generation.
