MIT 3939F-001 (Fall 2021)   Indigenous Perspectives in the Media

Instructor: S. Locklear

Course Description
While the Truth and Reconciliation Commission identifies the media as intrinsic to Indigenous reconciliation, the media remains a site through which the legacy of settler colonialism circulates, perpetuating damaging representations and restricting access to alternative narratives. This course explores the systemic effects of this legacy and identifies potential medial solutions.
