People define propaganda differently. Some believe it to be any manipulative communication, similar or equal to advertising, and others give it a more specific qualification.
The C+MRC welcomes Liv Grasso as our student intern for the Spring 2022 semester. Olivia (Liv) Grasso is a senior undergraduate student at Montclair State University in New Jersey. After earning her Associate of Arts degree in Communications from Union County College, Liv is now working towards a Bachelor of Arts degree in Communication and Media Arts in the School of Communication and Media. Liv is currently interning for the C+MRC as a blogger.
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.
The C+MRC will be joining NAMLE to commemorate the 5th Annual National Media Literacy Week during October 21-25, 2019. We have a number of events, podcasts and resources to share. Check back regularly for updates.
Faith Rogow and Sherri Hope Culver join the C+MRC podcast for a thoughtful discussion about what adults do and do not yet know about the tweenage digital experience. Emergent issues (from S2 E1) include the economy of YouTube, authenticity and trust, and the differences (if any) between engagement online versus offline.
