Join Reveal Digital’s Anne Ray and Peggy Glahn for the Funder’s update where they will share outcomes from 2020 activities and plans for 2021 and beyond. This session will also feature guest speaker Adriana Cásarez, Diversity Resident Librarian at the University of Texas at Austin, who is using Independent Voices content from “The Rag” as the basis for her text mining project to analyze how the underground, radical publication portrayed Black, Indigenous and People of Color in its coverage of the counterculture movements during the 1960s-1970s.
Join us to hear from Yukari Iwatani Kane and Shaheen Pasha, co-founders and co-directors of the Prison Journalism Project. They will talk with us about how they are changing lives by teaching incarcerated people how to be journalists and providing them with a platform for these journalists to tell their own stories and those of their communities.
Bridget Madden, Associate Director of Visual Resources Center at the University of Chicago, will introduce the Cookbook of Remote and Hybrid Instructional Strategies in Art History, a guide to integrating images into teaching for greater engagement. She will be joined by PhD candidate Carly Boxer, who will discuss her experience implementing the guideline in a digital “field trip” assignment.
We will also talk about how you can integrate Artstor’s world-class images into the cookbook’s strategies.
