The University of North Texas is proud to host the inaugural Mediating Change conference November 1-2, 2018 in Denton, TX.
The conference focuses on the roles of media in creating a more equitable, inclusive, sustainable, and just society. The goal is to bring scholars, media practitioners, educators, and/or activists together in one space so that we can all learn from and about each other’s research, creative projects, tools, and strategies.
The conference includes 7 breakout sessions with local, national, and international researchers, activists, mediamakers, and educators. There will be 4 interactive workshops, which are designed to give attendees an opportunity to learn how to put the conference's themes into action.
Maori Karmael Holmes will give our keynote address on Thursday afternoon. That evening we will screen the feature length documentary Call Her Ganda, followed by a discussion with PJ Raval and Curran Nault. On Friday we will host a plenary discussion on the ethics of community media making and activist research. The conference will close with a reception and interactive exhibit at UNT on the Square in downtown Denton.
