This September, the Digital Journalism class at Saint Martin's University explored the controversy surrounding Olympia Food Co-op's decision to boycott Israeli products. Over the span of several weeks, the class conducted research and designed Power Point slides that represent various perspectives on the issue.
SMU's O'Grady library displayed the slides on a digital monitor in the library alcove. Close by, the librarians set up a display of books for visitors inspired to further investigate the topic of Israeli and Palestinian relations.
The library was pleased to see that the ALA's American Libraries magazine took note of the project in an article by Greg Landgraf . In addition to the library installation, the class also published an online version of the slide show posted above.
Using the slide show as material for their own class assignment, students from PHIL 301, Ethics: Theory and Practice reviewed the slides and wrote responses to the project, which they plan to share with the Digital Journalism students later in the semester.
This installation was inspired by the The September Project. For more details about the assignment, see the post below.
