Opp: Media, Politics and Young People

2016 was a seismic year in politics. The poisonous and dishonest nature of the Brexit and US Presidential campaigns, as well as the outcomes, left most educationists bewildered. How can we as teachers promote respectful, rational and evidence-based dialogue when politicians and media gain support and audiences through the opposite? There is an urgent need for educators to consider such issues, hence the AMES 2017 conference has the theme ‘Media. Politics and Young People’. It takes place on Sat 3 June at St Leonard's Hall, Pollock Halls, Holyrood Park Road, Edinburgh. AMES is delighted to welcome Eamonn O’Neill, award-winning investigative journalist and filmmaker, to deliver the keynote address. Eamonn is Associate Professor in Journalism at Edinburgh Napier University and a regular contributor to BBC Radio Scotland’s Media Review. The conference will feature workshops on politics and gender politics as represented in news media, documentary, feature film, Persepolis (animated film and graphic novel) and How to Read Donald Trump. Research evidence shows that the analysis and creation of film and media content is a key motivator and contributor to the development of literacy skills. So the conference also features workshops aimed at promoting literacy and creativity through media activities. AMES gratefully acknowledges the support of Scottish Film Education and Into Film.
