The purpose of Media & Culture Screening and Discussion Series, an on-campus project created in the fall of 2003, has been to facilitate the viewing and discussion of alternative media, with a particular focus on the social role of mass media and issues of ideology, power, and the politics of representation. The following project report details the creation, execution, social context and theoretical underpinnings of the Media & Culture Screening & Discussion Series. Grounded in principles of popular critical education and a feminist social justice agenda, the Screening Series is both pedagogical and activist, and is an example of one of the ways media education might be 'done'.
