We may be facing challenges as individuals, as communities, and as a nation right now, but we can find strength and purpose when we share our passions and dreams with each other. With that in mind, we have initiated a social media campaign with the hashtags #letsDUthis and #fall4DU. Watch Dr. Lynn Schofield Clark's video below.

MFJS Statement on #ShutDownAcademia and #Strike4BlackLives, June 2020

The Department of Media, Film and Journalism Studies supports students, faculty and staff who have been participating in demonstrations and working against police brutality and systemic racism. We recognize the traumatic impact the recent deaths of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, Tony McDade, and so many others have had - on many of us, and on Black students and colleagues in particular. As part of our commitment to anti-racist pedagogy and scholarship, we as a department recognize that State violence against Black communities is connected to the colonialist history of the United States, and we recognize that white supremacy and systems of oppression are similarly woven into the systems of higher education.

We are participating in the June 10, 2020 #ShutDownAcademia and #Strike4BlackLives movement. As a department, we want to center the voices and scholarship of our Black and Brown students and colleagues, and will be taking this day to self-educate and consider how structural racism has played out, and continues to play out, in the life of this university and specifically in our department.
