Curating Media and Design: Prism: a tool for collective interpretation, not just fact-checking or copy-editing

Curating Media and Design: Prism: a tool for collective interpretation, not just fact-checking or copy-editing:

medeamalmo:

Prism is an experiment in crowd-sourcing, which until now has only made fact-checkers and copy editors of the “crowd.” One of the fundamental questions behind Prism is: what happens when the “crowd” is asked to imagine and interpret, rather than merely transcribe?

If there’s one thing I learned very early on when I started getting involved with the gaming community it’s that being Black and being queer are kisses of death. Revealing yourself to be either of those is going to cause a tidal wave of bullshit to be thrown at you in a lot of groups and when you…

Media Justice: Why Citations Matter (and how to do them properly w/virtual resources)

Media Justice: Why Citations Matter (and how to do them properly w/virtual resources):

latinegrasexologist:

You may want to bookmark this post for future reference. For many of you in school (high school, college, a vocational school) you are most likely going to be expected to write something. Each semester I have students write at least two papers, which is something that we are encouraged to do in an effort to support and expect students to be able to express themselves through writing. With all of the advances in technology, many folks are writing online. When you write, citations are important.

Citations are not just for the reader, but they are also for you, the writer and the folks whose work you find useful. These citations are so important; they shows you have done your research, are open to other perspectives, and can offer ways for the reader to go back and read those citations and make their own opinions. They are also important because naming the people whose thoughts, ideas, beliefs, and work makes them visible. Often youth, working class people, folks with disabilities, who are trans* or people of Color rarely get the attention, support, and simple naming of their work that other folks receive. Our names are powerful and choosing not to name someone, or ignoring their name is a form of erasure. This happens too often, even within and among marginalized groups.
