Connecting research, practice, and the classroom to push toward more inclusive journalism
August 3rd, 2021
2:30 ET- 4pm ET
Around the U.S., news organizations have been reckoning with the structural racism that undergirds their newsrooms and the larger industry. At the same time, a number of scholars have been researching how racism and whiteness influence the field’s norms and practices. In this Engaged Journalism Exchange AEJMC preconference, we will explore where efforts seeking to push toward antiracist journalism have the potential to collide—in journalism education classrooms and beyond.
In a series of lightning presentations and discussions, we will explore how journalism educators have been bringing best practices for inclusive and antiracist journalism into the classroom, and discuss how curricula may be adapted to question harmful norms and practices, and to build competencies needed for more inclusive journalism.
