Media Advocacy for Humanitarian Disarmament: From Landmines to Killer Robots


Dates:
Mon Oct 20, 2014 18:00 - Mon Oct 20, 2014

Location:
New York City, New York
United States of America

Join the School of Media Studies for a discussion with Mary Wareham, Jody Williams, and Peter Asaro.

Chaired by Dr. Peter Asaro, this panel discussion by Nobel Peace Laureate Ms. Jody Williams and Mary Wareham of Human Rights Watch will look at the evolving nature of media outreach and advocacy for humanitarian disarmament.

Williams and Wareham have collaborated together over the past twenty years on initiatives to ban antipersonnel landmines and cluster munitions. They are co-founders of the Campaign to Stop Killer Robots (www.stopkillerrobots.org), a global coalition of non-governmental organizations that is seeking a preemptive ban on weapons that would select and attack targets without meaningful human control.

The panelists will consider how media has reacted to and covered the challenges posed by autonomous weapons and call for a ban as well as the similarities and differences to media outreach and advocacy for campaigning against landmines and cluster munitions. They will discuss how the Internet and social media have changed the landscape, and also how new media has changed the campaign’s approaches to mainstream media and journalists.

From Punk Zine to Major Media Force: VICE


Dates:
Thu Oct 30, 2014 18:30 - Thu Oct 30, 2014

Location:
New York City, New York
United States of America

VICE, a magazine focused on arts, culture, and news topics, began as an online zine in Montreal in 1994. Five years later, the founders moved it to New York where they expanded the magazine to VICE Media (now headquartered in Williamsburg) and created divisions that include: the magazine, a website, a film production company, an HBO news series, a record label, a publishing imprint, a network of online video channels including VICE.com, TehCreatorsProject.co, Motherboardtv, Fightland.com, Noisey.com, and Thu.mp, and much more. Today, VICE produces over 60 original video series, covering news to travel to music to arts to fashion, and has a network of correspondents and bureaus.

Avid followers of the “Immersionist” school of journalism, VICE founders play by their own rules with news-gathering tactics that are the antithesis to methods used by mainstream news outlets. Learn from company insiders, including co-founder Suroosh Alvi, how this outrageous, no-holds-barred, do-it-all media entity is becoming the new model to watch by big media.

Center for Communication is an independent nonprofit media forum with 501(c) (3) status that was founded in 1980 by the late Dr. Frank Stanton, president of CBS Corp. The mission is to bridge the gap between the media and entertainment industry and the colleges and universities.

Sponsored by The Center for Communication and The School of Media Studies.
