Enlace directo a la revista que publica el Center for Media Literacy y algunos de sus principales documentos
For over 15 years — 1977–1993 — Media&Values magazine plowed the field for planting the media literacy movement in the United States. Begun as a graduate school project by CML founder Elizabeth Thoman, a former high school English and journalism teacher, the magazine grew over the years to become the "smartest magazine about the media published in the United States" according to the London Sunday Telegraph.
Originally a newsletter for teachers and leaders in the religious community, it evolved over time into a non-commercial, non-sectarian publication with a circulation of over 5,000. Each issue explored a single topic through articles by scholars, interviews, excerpts from new books, and action ideas for teachers, youth workers, family counselors and others.
Media&Values Archive: Issues 1 – 63
Acclaimed for its ability to interpret complex issues without watering down their significance, it served for many as a low-cost accessible "reader" on core media topics facing our society in the last quarter of the 20th century. The publication was discontinued in late 1993 but many articles in its 63 issues continue to be relevant to the ongoing conversation about the function and future of media and technology in our lives.
Thanks to grants and contributions from many longtime supporters of the magazine, including former staff, writers, photographers and artists, CML is pleased to provide this archive of articles from Media&Values as the foundation for our online "Reading Room."
