Hi! My name is Aggie Ebrahimi and I am new to the Media Ed lab, and so happy to be here! I am thrilled to be working as part of the Media Literacy for Cultural and Global Understanding project. As an Iranian American, and as a student of cultural studies and women's studies, as well as a student of film and media production, I cannot think of a more worthwhile or exciting project to be a part of. Stay tuned to my blog to find out all I learn as the semester progresses! And please let me know if you ever run across any materials that you think could be useful in this work and help us to move forward in expanding media literacy concepts and cultural understanding, please do email me! See you next week!
The Media Education Lab at the University of Rhode Island advances media literacy education through research and community service. We emphasize interdisciplinary scholarship and practice that stands at the intersections of communication, media studies and education.
Quote of the Day
A democratic civilization will save itself only if it makes the
language of the image into a stimulus for critical reflection, not an
invitation to hypnosis.
