Democracy Workshops: Critical Media Literacy as a Tool for Empowered Civic Engagement

Wed 11/1/2023 • 6PM - 8PM PDT

Pauley Pavilion Clubhouse

Led by Jeff Share (PhD ‘06), a lecturer in the School of Education and Information Studies, this workshop will explore critical media literacy as a tool to question media representations with the goals of strengthening democracy and empowering responsible citizenry. Through an interactive presentation with media examples, participants will learn how to use the critical media literacy framework to question the information, entertainment, and media that have become as ubiquitous as the air we breathe. Attendees will apply these critical skills to unpack hidden biases as well as to make their own alternative media, including an opportunity to create their own memes to express their ideas about democracy.
