Course on digital media and activism at Helsinki

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.
