Engagement Journalism at the Newmark J-School
Join us for an afternoon to celebrate the Engagement Journalism work we do at the Newmark Graduate School of Journalism at CUNY, as well as provide a provocative look at the current status and future of engagement journalism as it continues to evolve to become more and more ambitious in its transformation of news that is participatory and centers the needs of historically marginalized or oppressed groups.
From Noon to 3 p.m. ET, we’ll host three sessions on Zoom, listed below. Then, from 3-3:30, join us for a round of speed networking (a separate link will be provided to attendees.)
