Flow Conference public roundtable: Praxis in Practice

With a focus on current trends in television, media industries, and media studies, the 2018 Flow Conference invites the public to this featured roundtable, "Praxis in Practice."

Media praxis can refer to an array of initiatives designed to merge theory with practice and engage with challenges facing media studies and/or higher education.

Roundtable panelists:

  • Dr. Aymar Christian (Northwestern University)
  • Dr. Lori Morimoto (independent scholar)
  • Dr. Christine Becker (Notre Dame)
  • Dr. Randolph Lewis (UT Austin)

Each panelist will prepare a brief, informal statement on how they incorporate praxis into their work, followed by a roundtable discussion and a broader Q&A session. Radio-Television-Film Assistant Professor Suzanne Scott and Ph.D. candidate Jacqueline Johnson will moderate.

The panelists' initiatives include: OTV | Open Television, a research project and platform for intersectional television developed by Christian; “End of Austin,” a digital humanities project created by Lewis; “Aca-Media,” a media studies-focused podcast co-hosted by Becker and Dr. Michael Kackman; and “Fan Studies for Fans,” an online lecture series designed by Morimoto.
