Full Bio: 

Emilia Yang is an activist, artist and militant researcher and is currently a doctoral student in the Media Arts & Practice program at the University of Southern California's School of Cinematic Arts. Her work has been interconnected with digital communications, performance and public art. Her areas of interest intersect with her activism work and include participatory media activism, public art, new social movements, network theory and digital cultural production in Latin America under the lens of critical theory.

Emilia is interested in taking a deconstructivist and decolonial approach to participatory media, design and public art with the objective of creating hybrid process and technologies in conjunction with people who do not have access to technology to discuss, rethink and intervene social, political and environmental issues that affect them.

Emilia completed an MA in Communications at Penn State University. Her Master’s project researched the first social media protest to make it to the streets in her home country Nicaragua. She developed a participatory transmedia storytelling hub in a site called ocupainss.org with the objective to present the maximum number of stories and violations of human rights around this protest. Her work will be published in early 2016 in “Protest, Media and Culture” published by MeCCSA Social Movements Network edited by Rowman and Littlefield.
