DIGITAL engAGEment Conference: Media. Literate. #activist
DIGITAL engAGEment encompasses myriad ways in which humans encounter, utilize, create, and participate with digital technologies, processes, experiences, cultures, and environments in the contemporary moment.
This year's theme—Media. Literate. #activist—is a call to express and refresh concepts of media activism and media literacy in the present moment, specifically: What does it mean to be a media activist, to study media activism, and to critique media coverage and activism in the current digital (and political) environment? How does media activism connect to media literacy, by which we mean both the educational and social movements that encourage critical engagement with media as well as the basic comprehension and understanding the digital environment requires of its users and citizens?
