Media and Social Justice
Part of journalism’s mission is to tell the stories of those who are disenfranchised, marginalized, or oppressed, the stories of those who are most vulnerable to injustice and inequality. But is journalism really about justice? Should it be? Media and Social Justice (JOUR 368) explored ways to report on social justice topics, through opinion writing, solutions journalism, immersive journalism, and investigative journalism. This course was taught by Ann Oldenburg as a Doyle Seminar in fall 2021.
