“Social Justice Media: Web 3.0 and the Public Square”

Monday, March 11, 2013 - 22:30 to Tuesday, March 12, 2013 - 00:30

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.

Thank you for reading this story...

More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all. But media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our only supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help.

If everyone who visits rabble and likes it chipped in a couple of dollars per month, our future would be much more secure and we could do much more: like the things our readers tell us they want to see more of: more staff reporters and more work to complete the upgrade of our website.

We’re asking if you could make a donation, right now, to set rabble on solid footing in 2017.
