The traditional university course that relies on lectures is being replaced by more participatory and multi-media learning strategies.  Central to this change is the scholarly-activist video, produced by students who advocate for social justice within and outside the university. This workshop is designed to provide participants with three key steps to create scholarly-activist videos and receive appropriate academic reward for their work.  The steps include designing a scholarly plan of action, crafting politically useful visual text, and measuring the efficacy of scholarly-activist videos. This is not a video production how-to workshop. It is a hands-on conversation about the integration of video strategies in university coursework and dissemination of image-based scholarship in the Ivory Tower and beyond. Led by Marty Otañez, Phd
of University of Colorado, Denver’s Anthropology Department. Grab the full program for the Art of Social Justice Conference here!
