Young Public Scholars: Influencing for Social Justice (On-Campus)

We live in a society where truth—personal, political, socio-cultural, and historical—seems subject to constant scrutiny and critique. What is real, and how can we “be real” on our social media messaging and storytelling? How can we be authentic to ourselves and to social justice in a mediated world of Instagrams and TikToks? In this course, students will talk about social justice movements through a performance studies lens. We will ask: How do people embody their values and fight for change on platforms that seem designed for “fake news” and illusory personal branding? Then, we will work to create our own social media campaigns to become social justice influencers ourselves. There is no need to toss aside the image you have been creating over the years; how can we use your true voice to combine your messages, thoughts, feelings, passions, and social justice struggles, ideals, and dreams for truly change-making posts?  Find your voice and change the world—one post at a time.
