Remix: Teaching Diversity and Promoting Inclusivity with Digital Artifacts

Although some may believe that simply learning about diversity and media representation will make our students better people and therefore better media producers, other concerns in their early career (e.g., colleague hierarchy, maintaining employment) may inhibit this new generation of media producers from affecting change. What good are diversity classes if students cannot promote awareness in the workplace?

In my Race and Gender and Media class at Newhouse, students write professional emails that describe how and why certain media artifacts are problematic or progressive. Read more about this assignment at MediaShift.org.
