Seismic shifts in our media landscape leave our students with outdated models for understanding a world in which knowledge is created, distributed and evaluated in radically new ways. Athough the phrase “participatory culture” has roots in the field of communication, it describes an interdisciplinary, disruptive phenomenon transforming politics, economics, science and creative culture. This interdisciplinary panel explores the historical antecedents of participatory culture, ethical considerations and the implications of this new landscape for media literacy. Moderator: Jennifer Henderson, Trinity University
Panelists: Mark Deuze, Indiana University; Participatory Culture and Media Life: Approaching Freedom
Jim Potter, University of California - Santa Barbara; The Expanding Role for Media Literacy in the Age of Participatory Cultures
Jennifer Henderson, Trinity University; Toward an ethical framework for online participatory cultures
Aaron Delwiche, Trinity University; The New Left and the Computer Underground: Recovering political antecedents of participatory culture
