Hosts Christine Becker and Michael Kackman explore current scholarship, issues in the media industries, questions in pedagogy and professional development, and events in the world of media studies. The August episode features an interview with Jennifer Petersen on film and early freedom of speech laws and a Vox Scholari segment with attendees from the Craft of Criticism conference.
Cinema Journal and TeachingMedia.org have formed a partnership
to develop a quarterly feature called the Cinema Journal Teaching Dossier.
The goals of this partnership are to foster critical reflection on media
studies teaching and pedagogy and to engender serious discussion of pedagogical
issues via an active online platform. The
current dossier is on Teaching Film and Media Studies in Liberal Arts Colleges.
This collaboration between MediaCommons and Cinema Journal is the first
peer-reviewed academic journal of videographic film and moving image studies.
The second issue is now available at the above link.
