Media and Social Change – Part 2 of 2

Pre-event Announcement:
This Friday, June 19th, Bob Devine ‘68 will teach a session of his Media & Social Change class as part of the Nonstop Institute’s Summer Alumni Festival. This class has been a favorite of many Antioch students over the 20 years that Bob has been teaching it. Bob is retiring at the end of this semester and this session will be his last class – it is not to be missed!

Media & Social Change played a vital role in Antioch’s communications curriculum. In this last session of the class, Bob will look back to the 20 years that he has been teaching the class and “explore the paradigm shift in social change media during those years — from content distribution to interaction and the building of relationships — with some comments on the communications and organization relative to the saving of the College.” From documentary films of the 60’s and 70’s, to public access, to social networking media, Bob will discuss how we use media to shape the world around us and how it shapes us.

Alumni and friends who cannot make it to the Summer Alumni Festival this weekend will be able to watch a live video feed of Bob’s class and other programming on www.nonstopinstitute.org. A chat window will be in place to allow viewers to talk about the programming.

Bob Devine has thirty years of teaching in the general field of Communications, fifteen years in CEO and leadership roles in non-profit organizations, and credits on several dozen documentary film and video productions. His teaching fields include communications theory, social theory, film history, cultural studies, community media and the use of democratic and participatory media for social change. Other areas of teaching interest include African-American film, Labor and film, and the First Amendment.

Bob Devine will teach the class from 12:30AM to 2PM on Friday, June 19th at Nonstop’s space in the Millworks building, at 305 N. Walnut Street in Yellow Springs.
