KIM over inclusie in relatie tot mediawijsheid (Netwerk Mediawijsheid)

“De missie van ons netwerk is: “Nederland mediawijs”. Dat staat voor een Nederland waarin iedereen mediawijs is – of bezig is om dat te worden. Een Nederland waar mensen de voordelen van media kunnen benutten, terwijl ze de risico’s ervan kunnen vermijden.

Door de coronacrisis hebben mensen massaal en in recordtijd een vracht aan nieuwe kennis en vaardigheden op het gebied van (online) media opgedaan. Nu is het moment om door te pakken als netwerk en al die mensen ook de nodige mediawijsheid bij te brengen.

Maar hoe gaan we daarbij om met verschillen tussen mensen? Elk mens heeft door de jaren heen een eigen manier van omgaan met media opgebouwd. Dit hangt samen met bijvoorbeeld levensfase, scholing, culturele achtergrond, religie, gender of maatschappelijke positie. We zullen moeten aansluiten op ieders persoonlijk ‘mediaverhaal’. Hebben wij als organisaties en netwerk wel in huis wat nodig is om op al die verschillende verhalen in te kunnen spelen? Deze vraag roept om zelfreflectie en een kritische blik op hoe wij onszelf organiseren.

In tekst en beeld delen partners van Netwerk Mediawijsheid wat inclusie voor hen betekent. Bekijk de bijdragen van MEE NL, Mira Media, SeniorWeb, Common Frames, Human, Wien’s ontwerperschap, Beeld en Geluid en Netwerk Mediawijsheid.”

Kim geeft een lezing tijdens het Urban arts evenement

Wat als een comedian criminaliteit verheerlijkt, in hoeverre zouden we daar censuur op zetten? Crump dansen is een vrije dans stijl dat een vertaling is van woede, emoties en passie. Wie draagt de verantwoordelijkheid, waar trekken wij de grenzen en wie bepaalt wat mag?

Diverse sprekers geven hier hun visie over en gaan met elkaar in gesprek.

KIM is a guest on a three part series on (global) Hip Hop culture

KIM gives a speech on her PhD research

KIM gives a lecture on US regional Hip Hop at Utrecht University

From NY to LA and Atlanta: US regional Hip-Hop, identities and impact

Hip Hop culture has become a powerful global force and its musical expression, rap, is the most streamed musical genre in the world. There are several “social spheres” that explain how a culture that started in the 70s in a disadvantaged neighborhood in the Bronx, could become such a global phenomenon. Youth in different parts of the world are attracted to Hip Hop culture because they 1) identify with the hardships of marginalized groups, 2) feel connected with the Africanist aesthetics (e.g. rhetorical strategies) or 3) are drawn to the rebellious nature of Hip Hop (it challenges adult authority).

This lecture primary focuses on three important Hip Hop regions: East coast, West coast and the “Dirty South”. Their regional Hip Hop identities, influences on the global commodification processes of African-American (re)presentations, and the political and sociological implications of ‘Hip Hop images’ are discussed. The regional journey through Hip Hop culture starts in New York (70s/80s) and ends in Atlanta (10s); the city that is currently considered Hip Hop’s capital.

KIM is a guest on the podcast ‘Lead the Wave’

  new episode alert!
On this episode, I am joined by International Television Personality and Journalist Kim Dankoor (IG: @reporter_kimbykim ) as we discuss embracing diversity. Hearing about another’s experience can shed light on a life different than your own and provide you a new perspective.  If you experience diversity in your every day life, you can have regular exposure to people, cultures, traditions, and practices that are unlike your own. You can learn the skills to communicate and interact with communities and concepts that you are unfamiliar with and gain a more worldly view.

“Okurrr-ing” and “Yeet-ing” during a news broadcast: does journalism need to be entertaining to survive?

During a panel conversation on journalism and democracy, journalists Valerie Boyd, Shaun-ya Chavis-Rucker, and Douglas Blackmon, debated the current trends in (North-American) news journalism: Why do certain anchors, who noticeably are not the biggest Hip Hop heads, use excessive Hip Hop lingo during a news broadcast? Why do some anchors lose their cool and go on full-blown rants during news episodes? Why do cable news outlets invite controversial guests, known for their stupidity, instead of commentators who know what they are talking about? All panelists agreed that news journalism has become more market-driven and formats that were expected to result in more eyeballs, thus in more dollar bills, became more important than the basic journalistic formats of ‘informing the citizens’.

Another important topic was the growth of digital technology, since social media have led to the democratization of the news. Nowadays, anyone with a smart phone can produce news, make people all over the world aware of injustices in their environment, and state their opinions on current news events. The good thing is that ‘citizen journalism‘ and excellent reporting from (online) independent news outlets can lead to dismissals of employees who discriminate, and changes on a policy level. The bad thing is that it becomes harder for people to discern news facts from opinions about news stories. The ugly thing is that extreme political views have a platform too and might end up on people’s social media timeline more often due to new algorithms (Darcy, 2019).

So, will the intensified fight for viewership, online competitors included, force news organizations to make unusual choices? Can this noble profession only survive when ‘the Tekashi 6ix9ine’s of journalism’ (entertaining and controversial personas) become the messengers of news? Here are a few tips to deal with the current and future state of journalism: 1. Use multiple news sources to get a more balanced view 2. Verify every news source 3. Be cognizant of the difference between a fact and an opinion (“Cardi B trademarked her catch phrase Okurrr” is a fact/ “Cardi B’s career should end because she admitted to drugging and robbing men” is an opinion). I also have some advice for news reporters and social commentators. Reporters, although it seems ‘entertaining’, please engage less often in fear-mongering journalism and more often in solutions journalism. Social commentators, although it might enhance the entertainment level of the program, you don’t have to state your opinion on everything. It is okay to say that you don’t know enough of a current news event to form an accurate opinion and that the last thing you want to do is misinforming your (huge) following.

KIM as a podcast guest

Being a guest on the ‘We kill Cowboys’ #podcast was awesome! We talked about the state of Hip Hop culture, its political/societal implications, academics & global politics. Check out these Morehouse men’s podcast based in Atlanta!

Guest speaker at Clark Atlanta University

Two weeks ago a digital editor of news network CNN spoke to the (Music) Journalism students of CAU; last week I got a chance to talk to professor Daniel’s class. I discussed my PhD research, my work as an interviewer, the concept of solutions journalism, my views on current Hip Hop culture from a sociological standpoint, cultural appropriation, and politics. Furthermore, I introduced them to some Dutch Hip Hop (political rap, party rap, and an example of cult. App/overcommercialized rap), and I shared my Tidal playlist…eeyyy.

Contact me (info@kimbykim.com) if you ever want me to talk to your class!

 

Professor Griff of legendary Hip Hop group Public Enemy is here for KIM’s t-shirt line!

“It’s hard to be what you hardly see™!

In connection to the current state of Hip Hop culture: Diversify themes within current commercial rap; more social commentary, more political messages, more women, more different performances of masculinity. In sum, a true reflection of the polylithic culture.

Georgia State University students interview KIM

Bachelor journalism students interviewed Kim Dankoor about her views on Hip Hop culture (i.e. representations in commercial rap, underground rap around the world, the ‘2019 Grammy wins’ the Gucci boycott, and the future of this culture), the current state of journalism, stereotypes in popular media, and global politics. They also asked her questions about her career, her purpose in life and how she strives to make a difference in the media world. They were also curious about the cultural differences between the Netherlands, Suriname, and the United States. Kim’s interview will be published in print.

Thank you for allowing our class to interview you! I really appreciate your response to my question about why focus on contemporary Hip Hop as the medium for social change. (Vanessa, student and social media manager).

 

 

KIM interviews authors and producers about the topic: ‘women, love and sexuality’


For the digital channel BTV, KIM interviewed several actresses and producers who contributed to the special Women’s History Month edition of the BLUE SERIES. The series, which runs from March 14-17, 2019, will feature 6 one-act original plays written and directed by African American women. During the press mixer, KIM got a chance to ask the crew and cast of the plays, ‘The pink tackle box’, ‘One two many’, and ‘Abstract unveiled’ questions about their creative journeys, and the overall themes of the plays (young women’s journeys, sexual assault, stripper life).

Furthermore, for an Atlanta podcast, KIM interviewed Troya Bishop M.ED, the author of the book: ‘The answers to intimacy‘. The purpose of her book is to promote love, peace, and power. “Love is the most powerful entity in this world, so teaching people how do to a better job of loving themselves and each other is essential in accomplishing the ultimate goal of peace.” (Bishop, 2018).  Troya and KIM discussed intimacy, sex, love around the world, dating apps and the role social media might play in men’s and women’s expectations about love.

KIM at the BET experience (new series Boomerang wants to combat stereotypes)

During a Panel conversation at the BET experience in Atlanta, the cast and executive producers of the new series ‘Boomerang’ stressed the societal importance of the diverse representations of Black men and women in the series. As Halle Berry, co-producer of Boomerang, explained in a previous interview: “You cannot underestimate the power of seeing yourself on the screen”[…..] “It makes you feel legitimate and included, and helps other people understand who you are and where you come from. And each story builds on the next.” (Variety, 2018). At the BET experience, the 1) representations of the ‘dark chocolate’ and thick(er) women, 2) the portrayals of bisexual Black men , and 3) the socio-economic classes of the characters (mostly middle to upper) were widely discussed, and are meant to counter narratives about Black millennials. Hopefully the crew will also consider to include persons with different religious backgrounds, gender identities, and types of (dis) abilities. The series premieres on February 12th on BET.

Lena Waithe (executive producer Boomerang): “I literally want this show to change the face of BET.” […..]”It’s just going to be a phenomenal experience and I’m going to be in Atlanta making s—t happen” (Variety, 2018).
