Join us at the National Association for Media Literacy Education (NAMLE) in Chicago this summer! The theme this year is “Engaging Citizens, Building Community.” NAMLE’s mission of the conference is to explore the relationships between media literacy education, civic participation and community-building within our contemporary culture. Happening from June 26th through 28th at Roosevelt College, scholars, educators, media professionals, students, and activists interested in furthering media literacy education are encouraged to attend.
