First Blog (English): Why fight against social injustices and disparities using civic engagement media?
During my first semester as a student of Comparative Media Studies at MIT, a masters program that takes a comparative approach to studying different forms of media and their impact on society, among many other things, I have had the opportunity to participate in the discussion regarding civic engagement and social justice media, and how to effectively widen the reach of these topics.
To start off, since this is my first blog post, I’ll dedicate a small part to talking about my past, and how I came to be a researcher of civic engagement and social justice media. (If these terms don’t make sense, please bear with me and we’ll try to examine them together. Also, this blog will probably be a bit longer than normal).
