Course Description: Recent protest movements worldwide have revealed an increasingly dialectic relationship between journalism and activism – or, more broadly, between media and social movements. This seminar covers various aspects of this relationship, such as developments in alternative journalism since the Zapatista movement and the advent of Indymedia, the turn to activism performed by some professional journalists, and the role of social media in the current movements’ communication and mobilization strategies. Classes are based on the discussion of texts, with a theoretical focus, and case studies from social movements from the recent years.
