Taught By: Peter Lucas

Section: A

CRN: 7071

Credits: 3

In this course, students will study the international youth media movement and its relationship to human rights, visual inclusion, and transformative pedagogy. Beginning with a base in critical pedagogy and the theories of Paulo Freire, we will study how transformative education has influenced non-formal and popular education movements. The second block of the course will examine the history of community-based media from an activist perspective and through the politics of representation. Closely related is the emergence of indigenous media, digital and visual inclusion projects, and the trickle down of these rights into youth media programs. The central section of the course will cover the contemporary landscape of youth media from a holistic perspective involving video production, kids with camera projects, and youth journalism. The forth section of the class will study how ones sets up and designs a youth media project with a broad focus on new media documentary practice involving film, photography and sound design. The final part of the class will consider how one packages youth media through online media environments, progressive outreach, and through human rights education.
