Hi everyone. Take a look at the great series of workshops being offered by JustPublics.

JustPublics at 365 MediaCamp

Media & Digital Media Skills Workshops for Sociologists

CUNY J-School

219 W. 40th Street, New York, NY

MediaCamp Workshops are skills-building sessions for intellectuals who want to combine research and digital media for the public good. These workshops are free for faculty, staff, and graduate students who seek to enrich their digital media skills.

On August 8-9, just before the annual meetings in New York City, there are two days of workshops designed especially for sociologists who want to share their research with wider audiences.

MediaCamp is made possible by a partnership between JustPublics at 365, the CUNY Graduate Center and the CUNY J-School. MediaCamp is sponsored by the Ford Foundation.

The workshops include:

- Op-Ed Pieces and Pitches: Framing Research for Public Audiences

- Twitter: Social Media Practicum

- Blogging: Social Media Practicum
- Smart Photos with Smart Phones

- Data Visualization: Making Sense of the Numbers

- Being interview on Camera: Big Media for Academics

Praise for previous MediaCamp workshops:

"After attending a MediaCamp workshop, I ended up publishing some of my research on women taxi drivers in American Prospect magazine. The editors were so excited that they ran three of my stories on immigrant workers as part of a series. And, the things I learned at the workshop came in very handy last week when, following the death of Hugo Chavez (about whom I've written), I found myself beseiged by media requests, including many international and local tv stations, and an interview on MSNBC with Chris Hayes. I used the workshop notes to prepare for my appearance on television and it helped calm my nerves and make me feel more confident."
