LAB: Citizen Activism or Journalism
Citizen journalism has been radically changing the way we produce and consume news and reports of events around the world. As Sahar Khamis notes, â€œcitizen journalism [provides] forums for ordinary citizens to document protests; to spread the word about ongoing activities; to provide evidence of governmental brutality; and to disseminate their own words and images to each other, and, most importantly, to the outside world through both regional and transnational media.â€
For this project, you will identify a current event or controversy that people may have a wide range of views about or it can be an issue or topic connected to one of the group projects. Characterize the reporting style of this citizen activism or journalism: how has Twitter (particularly hashtags) become part of the information relay or following on this issue or topic?; what visuals accompany the activism or reporting or what ones are followers or independent end users sharing on the event or issue?; what other forums are reporting on this issue or topic and does that yield differences in perspectives and how so?; in the blogs, what do you notice about those responding to articles or information posted?.
