I would like to introduce you to our new course assistant, Julian de Mayo Rodriguez. Julian is from Vancouver, and received his BA in Geography and Latin American Studies, with a Certificate in Spanish, at Simon Fraser University. Currently he is a Master’s Candidate in Media Studies at The New School for Public Engagement.
Julian has experience in civic engagement, community activism and social media. I first met him when he came to consult on a project about ACT-UP – New York’s Latino Caucus, which has taken him to the New York Public Library Special Collections.
I’m hoping that Julian can help each of us frame our projects with the appropriate social media. Here is a short 2-part YouTube video he made on the recent history of a gay bath house in New Westminster, outside Vancouver:
