The Transformation of the Media in the Digital Age
Monday, November 12

Rozen and Slavin will discuss the evolution of journalism in the digital age toward more specialized websites that cater to specific audiences. Is this a positive development or one that poses dangers to democratic governance? How do we find ways to preserve high quality foreign correspondence and investigative journalism?
They will also answer questions from the audience, including how to prepare to be a journalist.
