"Exploring the Intersections of Production, Pedagogy, and Advocacy in Media Literacy Education: Possibilities for Research and Praxis"

This session invites participants to explore the possibilities of “connection” at conceptual and collaborative levels. Bringing together a group of emerging scholars from across the country, we will present a brief synthesis of our respective research projects to consider how advocacy, production, and pedagogical practices of media literacy intersect with and inform one another. Our studies are bound by a shared commitment to push conceptions of literacy, research, and how learning spaces might function in more open, equitable, and connected ways.
