Socially Engaged Art

Citizen Journalism

Added on by Zachary Gough.

Chiron Studies is an amazing program at Portland State University, in which students facilitate courses for other students for credit. The program has been around since the late sixties, and has continuously been an opportunity for radical pedagogy within the traditional institution since then. (For more info about Chiron Studies, listen to the interview I conducted with it's long standing coordinator and board chair, Rozzell Medina, below). 

Luckily for me, the course I proposed entitled Citizen Journalism, an evolution of Correspondents' Be the News, was accepted and will run, provided sufficient enrollment, in the winter term.
