Workshop: Independent Media and International Solidarity

Thursday, June 17, 2010 - 6:30pm - 9:00pm


Room 2212, OISE

As world attention turns to the G8 / G20 summits in Ontario activists will converge on the streets in Toronto, joining people on the streets will be independent journalists with microphones, blogs, videos and note pads documenting the grassroots opposition to the elite summits locked behind police protected fences and a security bill estimated at around $1 billion. Independent journalists have long played a vital role in creating critical alternative perspectives on not only street protest but also on the ideas and inspirations that fuel grassroots movements for social justice globally.

Literary Mash-ups
By Daniela DiStefano

What do you get when you cross 19th-century English literature with 21st-century biological monstrosities and ultraviolent sea serpents? You get something like Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters -- the latest in literary mash-ups.

Mash-ups are older than as Jane Austen herself. Although the formats vary -- music, film, literature, and art -- the process is mainly the same. Elements of different source materials, whether a classic novel or a widely recognized play, are mixed together to create a new composition.
