Communication activism for social change

David Palmer has created an accompanying website (

This Teaching Communication Activism website is designed to be an information and networking hub for activist teachers, especially those in the communication discipline. The goals are to provide communication educators with ideas and resources to develop activist forms of teaching, and to have teachers share their ideas and resources to energize and connect to the community of activist teachers.

This website is inspired by traditions of social justice activism and of teaching and research that study and promote activism. Scholars from a wide range of disciplines, historically, have recognized the central role that social activism and activist education play in a vibrant democracy, and this website is a response to their collective call to forge community-based outlets that teachers can use as tools to build a more democratic and just world.
