By Lookout Staff
February 28, 2017 -- Working in diverse media -- from digital journalism to Hollywood -- will be the topic of four discussions as Santa Monica College (SMC) continues its Communication & Media Series next month, college officials announced last week.
The free lecture series at the main campus, 1900 Pico Boulevard, is sponsored by the SMC Communication & Media Studies Department. Seating is on a first-arrival basis.
On Tuesday, March 7, Media historian, author and SMC film studies professor Erin Hill will present “Women Working in Hollywood Production” at 11:15 a.m. in Art Lecture Hall 214.
Hill "will trace the long history of generations of women who worked behind the scenes in the film industry, challenging their characterization as menial workers, and showing how their labor was essential to the industry," event organizers said.
“How to Succeed in Journalism in the Digital Age” is the title of a lecture by Leezel Tanglao, CNNMoney digital war room’s assistant managing editor for programming, on Thursday, March 30 at 11:15 a.m. in Humanities & Social Sciences Lecture Hall 165.
Tanglao -- who also oversees content presentation for numerous premium businesses -- will discuss "the challenges and opportunities facing journalists in today’s digital world," organizers said.
The lecture is co-sponsored by the SMC Associates, a private organization that funds speakers and special programs on the Santa Monica College campus.
Bartholomew -- who has covered fast-breaking news in 50 countries for Time, Newsweek, US News and The New York Times and other publications -- will "talk about the day he shot the memorable photos at Florence and Normandie of the riots that erupted April 29, 1992, after the Rodney King verdict," organizers said.
Kibrick –- the Emmy-award host and creator of the nationally distributed show “Between the Lines with Barry Kibrick” –- will "offer inspiration based on solid realities."
Kibrick will discuss his background in TV and radio, and how, "under even the most precarious of circumstances, a mixture of perseverance, patience, and learning how to react and adapt to unforeseen circumstances can help anyone build a career, organizers said.
