Location: CTLR Lounge, Davis Family Library
Join us for an informal discussion about digital literacies with Henry Jenkins. He will lead us in a conversation about how high school graduates are arriving for college with transformed literacies fostered in both formal and informal educational experiences, and consider how a liberal education might best address our current and future students.
Henry Jenkins, Provost’s Professor of Communication, Journalism, and Cinematic Arts at the University of Southern California, is one of the world’s most influential and prolific scholars of media and culture. He is the author and/or editor of twelve books on various aspects of media and popular culture, including Textual Poachers: Television Fans and Participatory Culture, Convergence Culture: Where Old and New Media Collide and Spreadable Media: Creating Value and Meaning in a Networked Culture.
This roundtable is now full, but Professor Henry Jenkins will also be giving a public lecture later in the afternoon, titled “By Any Media Necessary: The New Activism of American Youth.”
