Navigating Media Literacy through the Realms of Disneyland

In August 2020 our own C+MRC Director, Dr. Vanessa E. Greenwood, released her 3rd book, Navigating Media Literacy: A Pedagogical Tour of Disneyland (Myers Education Press). Our intern interviewed her about what makes this book different from all the other books about Disney and why everyone outside (as well as inside) the Academy should read it. Here are excerpts from the interview.
