In Conversation with Lakehead Speaker Series
Tuesday, March 4th
We are excited to announce our new lecture series in partnership with Lakehead University.
March topic: "Transforming New Media: From Sexting to Social Change"
Smart phones and the internet are a powerful combination of technologies offering profound opportunities for media-driven social change. Instead we see a society obsessed with photographing ourselves, clothing optional, and competitively transmitting these pictures to make ourselves popular or destroy others. How can we move beyond selfies, sexting and cyberbullying to use new technologies cooperatively and creatively as we work toward positive social change in the global village? Sandra Jeppesen is leading a research project on New media activism in the global digital economy. She has been at Lakehead University in Orillia since 2010, and coordinates the program in Media Studies for Social Change.
Please email us to register or call 705-325-2338.
