Young Public Scholars: Social Media as Socially Conscious Storytelling (On-Campus)

Everyone seems to be expressing themselves online, telling their story, and trying to explain their point of view. But rarely is someone’s authentic voice able to come through. We are in a hurry and unconsciously editing ourselves as we post a comment or create a post. There is little time to think through how we know what we know, why we feel what we feel, and to express our true selves. How can we tell our stories and our truths and show our unique perspective in new and interesting ways? What social issues matter to you, and why and how do they personally affect you? What is it about certain political topics that relate to your personal experience, and how can you develop your authentic voice to create messages that are meaningful and surprising, creative, and simply true—your truth?
