The Media and Social Issues: Reporting from the Margins

JRN 448

Info tab content
What does it mean to report from the margins? What is center, and what is periphery? How does who I am, how I am, affect the way I write, and what I choose to write about? REPORTING FROM THE MARGINS will interrogate the fundamental tenets of journalism objectivity, professional distance and aim to recast them for the modern world. Throughout the semester, students will read works that both uphold, and challenge, existing notions of what makes an observer, and what makes a subject, and become adept at the power analysis that reveals hidden prejudices and biases that come to shape a story.
