Videos from Day 3: Plenary #2 and Round 2 of Ignite Talks
Plenary Session #2 of the 2013 Digital Media & Learning Conference, "Youth, Pop Culture, and Participatory Politics" Craig Watkins, Andrew Slack, Mark Anthony Neal, and Henry Jenkins discussed how young people's engagement with pop culture is a gateway to finding their voice and place in the sphere of participatory politics. Drawing from a variety of pop culture formations (including hip hop, fan cultures, etc.), the panelists considered some of the creative ways young people engage in participatory politics.
To close out DML2013, we had the second round of "Ignite Talks"--five-minute, condensed talks--on a wide range of topics. We will have the full recording of the 2nd round of Ignite talks, and the individual videos up on the official DML2013 YouTube Playlist soon!
