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.
NAMLE Detroit: Leading the Field
Amy Jensen and I proudly announced the Journal of Media Literacy Education this evening at the Leading the Field dinner event at the Westin Book Cadillac in Detroit, surrounded by 50 scholars and practitioners from the U.S. and across the world.
It was a delightful event, made ever more engaging by a "four corners" discussion activity where we brainstormed ideas for the three sections of the journal: imagine small groups of smart people discussing ideas for scholarly articles, practitioner-in--the-field accounts, and reviews of multimedia resources useful to our work. Plus, we considered how we might best support each other in developing new work in the field. What fun!
