Research for Media Activism

Spring 2021

Taught By: Aras Ozgun

Section: A

CRN: 3627

Credits: 3

This course will provide an overview of research methods for media activism. Students will analyze media activists' use of websites and blogs to share information or organize people into action, or to give a public face to activist groups. Documentaries that list specific ways people can take action, like "An Inconvenient Truth," will be screened. Students will learn how to conduct research to help organizations use media effectively to meet their objectives of political or social change. They will also learn which research methods to use to find out if media does help advance social justice or if people are actually moved to action by the media they consume.

Media Studies courses are open to all graduate students. Undergraduate Juniors and Seniors with permission from the instructor and BA/MA Media studies students should email mediastudiesadvising@newschool.edu for access.
