STUDENT ACTIVISM PROJECTS
Media Arts undergraduate students enrolled in my “Digital Literacies and Social Activism” course critically consider how they can use media as a tool to advocate for social change and justice. Groups have worked on projects related to: racial equity, gender equity, representations of women in the military, advocating for teens in foster care, reproductive justice, ending street harassment, and environmental justice.
Some groups collaborate with UNT’s Division of Institutional Equity and Inclusion in ways that were mutually beneficial to the students and the university. This is a selection of some of the students’ activist campaigns from three different semesters.
