01 Introduction from How The Monkees Changed Television with Rosanne Welch, PhD [Video] (0:50)

Rosanne Welch, PhD, Author of Why The Monkees Matter, presents “How The Monkees Changed Television” at a Cal State Fullerton Lunch Lecture on May 8, 2018.

In this talk, she shows how The Monkees, and specifically their presence on television, set the stage for large changes to come in the late 1960s.

Transcript

We’re going to talk about what was my favorite tv show when I was about 7-years-old and who knew that I would grow up and become a professor of Television Studies and I was asked at one point here at Fullerton to do a summer program we have for students, Gear Up, which is a program for students from high schools who are going to be introduced to what college is like so that they can be more comfortable signing up. It’s low income/high-achieving kids and so for that, they asked me to do a class in Critical Studies which is how to see into television programming, what was the ideology? What was behind the ideas of the show? And in doing so I thought “Well, gee, I want to talk about something I want to talk about so I chose my favorite show which I hadn’t really looked at in years only to find it was far more innovative than I had ever given it credit for as a kid.

From The Research Vault: You Can’t Air That: Four Cases of Controversy and Censorship in American Television Programming

From The Research Vault: You Can’t Air That: Four Cases of Controversy and Censorship in American Television Programming

From The Research Vault: You Can't Air That: Four Cases of Controversy and Censorship in American Television Programming

In this illuminating book, David S. Silverman assesses four controversial television programs from the perspective of media history, assessing the censorship present at all four networks and the political and intellectual inertia it produces in broadcast television. 

Beginning with The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour in the sixties, the author also examines The Richard Pryor Show, TV Nation, and Politically Incorrect. Drawing on firsthand accounts by the writers, producers, and performers of these programs, Silverman offers an unbiased view of the ways in which censorship, sponsor intimidation, regulation, and network tampering force all American broadcasters to manipulate creative talent and stifle genuine controversy. Shedding new light on the prevalence of censorship in broadcast television, this book reinvigorates the subject of free speech in American society. Amazon.com

Quote from “America’s Forgotten Founding Father” by Dr. Rosanne Welch – 12 in a series – Muslims and Christians

Quote from

“If Muslims and Christians can live together in the court of Mahmud,” said Filippo, “I imagine they can live together in one city.”

“True,” said Salinas. “And it will be our job to help them in all ways we can. Men of medicine have a commitment to their patients to assist them in all facets of life.” 

That was only one of many lessons Filippo learned in his life in Smyrna

Rosanne Welch, PhD will be presenting at this summer’s American Assoc. for Advancement of Science Annual Meeting, June 14, 2018

Dr. Rosanne Welch will be presenting at this summer's American Assoc. for Advancement of Science Annual Meeting, June 14, 2018

Thanks to an invitation from my TEDx friend and colleague Dr. Mariappan “Jawa” Jawaharlal, Professor of Mechanical Engineering here at Cal Poly Pomona (CPP), I’ve been asked to make a presentation during a session he is hosting on Engineering Education for the AAAS (American Asso. for Advancement of Science) during their Pacific regional conference being held on the CPP campus on June 14th. 

I’ll have a chance to tell an international crowd of engineering and science professors about other models of education beyond lecturing and standardized testing.The presentation will offer definitions and examples of ways to use well studied pedagogies such as flipping the classroom, Socratic seminars and hands-on exercises. By practicing creativity and highlighting the relevance of each lesson presented, students own much more of the information than when relying only on lectures and test-based assessments. 

Flipped Classroom Pedagogy

ROSANNE WELCH (MFA in Screenwriting Program, Stephens College and Interdisciplinary General Education Department, Cal Poly Pomona)

Based on my nearly 20 years of working to advance creativity in college classrooms both among students and faculty, this presentation will focus on the pedagogy of the flipped classroom and how that particularly suits science and engineering students in classes outside their discipline – and inside it as well. The presentation will offer definitions and examples of ways to use well studied pedagogies such as flipping the classroom, Socratic seminars and on hands on exercises. By practicing creativity and highlighting the relevance of each lesson presented, students own much more of the information than when relying on lectures and test-based assessments. That is not to say those do not play a part in these pedagogies, but they are not the only way to educate millennials.

I met Dr. Jawa when both of us gave TEDxCPP presentations in 2016.  Here’s a link to my talk from that night:

And here’s a link to his (which happened to be on Becoming a Bette Teacher – which is what started a conversation that has continued across both years and resulted in his visiting my classes as a guest speaker and my being asked to present at his conference):

This will be a fun new presentation to put together – before I begin the planning for the session I’ll be presenting in Milan for the next Screenwriting Research Network conference (that one will be on how and why I created my History of Screenwriting course – so stay tuned for more info on that one as well!).

Here’s the link to the bios of the other AAAS panel participants.

12 LGBTQ Representation and Doctor Who from Gender Diversity in the Who-niverse

For her 5th Doctor Who lecture to the CPP community, Dr. Rosanne Welch discusses how society – and the show’s writing staff – prepared the audience for a major change in this 50-year franchise – the creation of the first Lady Doctor!

Transcript:

Also, of course, as I said, Captain Jack, the first time we’re going to see — not first time but the first time very obviously Russell Davies wanted young gay men to see themselves on television as normal people. So you’re going to have Captain Jack in male relationships and gay relationships and it was just so incredibly cool to see and he’s so incredibly sexy. This is a lovely episode where we find out that Captain Jack stole his name from a real soldier in World War II and when they go back in time and they visit that guy it turns out to be the night before he’s going to die and our Captain Jack knows it but the real man doesn’t know it and they have a dance before he dies. You’re like “Oh my G–, I’m going to cry” it was so so good. So well done and then later he had an affair with one of the gentlemen who worked at Torchwood named Ianto and there’s a whole thing in England. There’s a whole shrine to Ianto. Very popular character.

When Women Wrote Hollywood: Essays on Female Screenwriters in the Early Film Industry 

I’m so excited to see that we’re so close to publication on this collection of essays written by the original cohort of students in our first Stephens College MFA in Screenwriting which I edited and for which author Cari Beauchamp wrote a wonderful forward covering the life and influence of Frances Marion. 

These 23 essays cover a range of female screenwriters from the early years of film through the 1940s, women whose work helped create the unforgettable stories and characters beloved generations of audiences but whose names have been left out of most film histories.  Not this one. This collection is dedicated to those women and written by a group of women grateful to stand on the shoulders of those who came before – as a beacon to those who will come after.
