For Tuesday’s class — and a note about Thursday
For class on Tuesday:
- We will finish off All the President’s Men and discuss
- Then move from recent history to much older history of journalism: please read Chapter 20 in Stovall.
Two other notes:
- There is now a copy of Stovall on reserve in the library.
- A week from today — Oct. 8 — at 4pm, is an Emerson-sponsored talk on the future of journalism that I strongly urge you to attend. So strongly, in fact, that attending — hopefully, asking a question! — and writing about the talk will be the only way to get extra credit this semester.
Here’s the info:
Pulitzer-Prize winning journalist and author Alex Jones
will speak on the Future of News
When: 4- 6 pm, Thursday Oct. 8
Where: Semel Theatre, Tufte Performance Center, 10 Boylston Place
