Drawing on historical examples of the best work of print, broadcast and digital journalists – from the editorialist to the war correspondent, from the photojournalist to the New Journalist, from the muckraker to the blogger – this class explores the development of the values, practices, ethical standards, technological developments and social roles that cluster around the institution of journalism. The focus is on the evolution of the role and work of the American reporter within the context of global developments.
Multiple instructors teach sections of this class.
