I’ve been thinking about building a “diversity and public media” reading list for a while now, stashing articles and archival data sets.
The problem: We know that public media must move toward greater inclusivity, but what does that mean? My digital file has grown to daunting proportions, in part because “diversity” is an inexact term.
We spend a lot of time talking about that in our office. Diverse relative to what? Race? Sex? Geography? Political points of view? Who is making public media? Whose voices are heard (and how are they framed)? Who consumes public media?
So my reading list sprawls. At some point, I decided to go back and chop it up into installments – when I got around to it.
Today’s the day, for two reasons:
1. AIR is going to announce the 2014 class of New Voices scholars next week (stay tuned).
