Critical Media Theory’s Role

Given the important function that social media has played in various social movements around the globe, how can critical media theory play a role?

Pre/Occupy Theory Speakers’ Series, a first for RTA School of Media and the Faculty of Communication and Design at Ryerson University, brings together cutting-edge theorists and practitioners who merge ideas about art, politics, design, media theories and technology. The lectures encourage students, scholars and community members to rethink forms of archival and orphaned media, and social activism, as well as current technologies and their implications for audiences, social movements, and media-makers.
