About the event
ABOUT THE PRESENTATION: Founded in 1976 as a media research program, Project Censored is now a nonprofit organization that advocates for free speech and media literacy in the United States. For close to half a century, the Project has worked to protect free speech and train professionals, students, and the general public to detect and resist media manipulation. It has long insisted that this dual approach—resisting censorship and teaching critical media literacy—is essential for a robust and functioning democracy.
ABOUT THE SPEAKER: Nolan Higdon is a founding member of the Critical Media Literacy Conference of the Americas, Project Censored National Judge, author, and lecturer at Merrill College and UC Santa Cruz. Higdon’s areas of concentration include podcasting, digital culture, news media history and propaganda, and critical media literacy. All of Higdon’s work is available at Substack. He is the author of The Anatomy of Fake News: A Critical News Literacy Education; Let’s Agree to Disagree: A Critical Thinking Guide to Communication, Conflict Management, and Critical Media Literacy; and The Media And Me: A Guide To Critical Media Literacy For Young People. Higdon is a regular source of expertise for CBS, NBC, The New York Times, and The San Francisco Chronicle.
