From the earliest days of Emerson College’s Engagement Lab, we have focused on the cross-pollination of ideas and the cultivation of partnerships between higher education institutions and organizations on the ground. The Civic Media: Art and Practice graduate program, which has now become the Media Design program, brought these partnerships into the classroom and opened up new avenues for the exploration of civic media. Among them is the Journal of Civic Media, an academic journal conceived by the 2019 CMAP cohort and continued by its network of partners. Check out our interview with the journal’s editor Vassiliki Rapti to learn more about the new issue and the history of the journal.
