"Making Media that Matters: Collaboration, Visibility, Resistance"
Presented by Gina Lamb, Media Studies, Pitzer College

Wednesday, November 15, 2017 | 4:15 p.m.
Founders Room, Claremont Colleges Library

Today's fast mobile media speeds up our screen life to 15-minute news cycle, and one-click slacktivism and targeted algorithmic bubblespheres disconnect us from our immediate surroundings. In this context, how do we foster a "slow media" movement with glocalized impact, that utilizes participatory media production as a conduit to spark dialogue directly with our neighbors? Hyper-local, and culturally specific productions bring surrounding urbanscapes into new focus, shifting existing relationships by challenging hegemonic corporate media sources that distort, or more often simply ignore, the stories and visibility of entire communities. In this lecture, Prof. Lamb will share example clips highlighting 15 years of collaborative media projects with local community and students.
