This fall, the College of Media presents the Ebert Symposium Series with virtual panel discussions. Join us online on Thursday, Oct. 22, for a discussion on Documentary Film and Social Change, moderated by College of Media faculty members Jay Rosenstein, professor of media and cinema studies; Alison Davis, lecturer in journalism; and Angela Aguayo, associate professor of media and cinema studies; with a panel of documentary filmmakers Kirby Dick, Sacha Jenkins, and Dawn Porter. (Read their bios.)

 

The panel will examine documentary film including features, community engaged projects, and cell-phone footage as political discourse directed towards social change. The panel will discuss documentary as a means to examine public life and engage public participation in social issues.

 

The Ebert Symposium Series continues on Thursday, Nov. 5, for a discussion on Representation in Media. 

 

The series will be broadcast on both the Ebertfest YouTube channel and Facebook page at 5 p.m. CST on their respective dates.
