Empowerment: From Theory to Practice to Activism

In this issue of Connections, we illustrate how theory, practice and activism work together through current research and implementation programs being conducted at the University of Southern California (USC).  We feature a dialogue between Henry Jenkins, a leading media scholar and Provost Professor of Communication, Journalism, and the USC School of Cinematic Arts, and CML’s Director, Tessa Jolls.  Their conversation focuses on David Bordwell’s insightful film theory and how it informs today’s media literacy work.  Also, an interview with Sangita Shreshtova who leads the Civic Imagination Project, and a MediaLit Moments activity with the Empowerment Spiral.
