About this site

This site is an online extension of ENG369: Media and Social Change at Salve Regina University taught in Spring 2019 by Dr. Madeleine Esch.

Now that the semester has ended, this site will be less active. However, you can still expect some new content based on our end-of-semester collaborative research into media coverage of and social media reaction to a string of three fires at historically black Baptist churches in Louisiana. Stay Tuned!

Meanwhile, we have three areas of content to explore:

  • Historical case studies drawn from Mightier Than the Sword by Rodger Streitmatter
  • A rich-media timeline of those historical case studies (plusĀ tips for setting up a timeline of your own)
  • Contemporary case studies drawn from By Any Media Necessary by Henry Jenkins, et al.
