EML offers opportunities for field work on participatory media / human rights and media. For four years now we have been partnered with the Arab American Family Support Center in Brooklyn, an after school learning center where we’ve been running youth media workshops. Fieldwork also includes the International Field study abroad programs.
EML is a lab for student workshops. The workshops have ranged from production and post production workshops, grant writing for documentary films, media packaging and audience engagement workshops.
EML offers screenings and sponsored talks and conferences. Over the past few years, EML has sponsored several media events here at the New School such as the Youth Media Summit and the participatory media event with the online platform, Beirut Syndrome.
EML is a space for faculty mentoring of students in classes related to social media, participatory media, documentary production, post production, and our classes related to media and human rights.
Our screenings and workshops are open to the public, and New School students and faculty can also join us at our weekly meetings.
