Le neuvième séminaire du CRIC sur l’activisme médiatique aura lieu le 2 février en compagnie de Sandra Jeppesen.

Sandra Jeppesen is an activist, researcher and educator. She researches autonomous media and anti-authoritarian social movements from a queer, trans, feminist, anti-racist, anti-capitalist & anti-colonial perspective. A collective member of the former Collectif de Recherche sur l’Autonomie Collective (CRAC), she is co-founder of the Media Action Research Group (MARG), Associate Professor in Interdisciplinary Studies, and Media Studies Program Coordinator at Lakehead University Orillia, Canada. She currently holds the Lakehead University Research Chair in Transformative Media and Social Movements.

The main question to be addressed in this workshop is: How can grassroots autonomous media projects that support radical social movements be more effective and sustainable over the long term? What are some of the challenges and successes experienced over the past few years by media activists across Canada, and on a global scale?
