Introducing myself to Civic Media

I just joined the Center for Civic Media and the Media Lab as a research assistant and graduate student. This fall I'm taking Sasha's Intro to Civic Media course to acquaint myself with the work of the Center and the philosophies and literature that underpin it. I hope by the end of the semester I will have a better understanding of the history of media activism, the key texts that inform the Center for Civic Media's directors, and how I might be able to contribute to the emerging field of Civic Media.
