Idle No More...Occupy Wall Street...Quebec student protests...Tahrir Square.... When these movements realized conventional media wasn’t working for them, they constructed a unique network of new and old media. What can we learn from these new communication networks? What are the implications for social change? Media theorist and activist Dr. Dorothy Kidd will address these and other issues in a lecture on MONDAY MARCH 11, 7:30PM.

This talk is part of the Pre/Occupy Theory Speakers’ Series, bringing together cutting-edge theorists and practitioners merging ideas about art, politics, design, theory and technology.

Dorothy Kidd has published in the areas of political economy of media, feminist media and social change, and alternative media. She has also worked extensively in community radio and video production. A graduate of RTA at Ryerson University, Dr. Kidd is currently Professor in the Department of Media Studies at the University of San Francisco.

This event is wheelchair accessible.
