Course Media, Activism and Social Change at the University of Helsinki (Spring 2019, 12.3.-2.5.2019) examines the complex relationships between the media, activism and social change through three distinct lenses:
- Theories and cases of media in the service activism for social change.
- Theories and cases of social activism pertaining to media and communication technologies themselves.
- Strategies and tactics of the above.
Taught by Cordi member Minna Horowitz, and featuring another member Outi Puukko as a guest lecturer, the course draws from some classic texts but focuses especially on digital activism and communication rights.
