APRIL 5TH MEDIA PANEL AT THE NEW SCHOOL
Journalism: Media Perspectives of a Global Generation
Wednesday, April 5, 6:00 p.m., $8. Webcast and online
discussion at www.online.newschool.edu. Students free.
Location: Theresa Lang Community and Student Center,
55 West 13th Street, 2nd floor.
As the news industry faces unprecedented change, this panel explores how 21st-century technology and human migration complicate and enrich the media landscape. Journalism’s future is seen through three key questions: How will the generation gap between print traditionalists and new media pioneers play out in the future of worldwide news collection, distribution, and consumption? Why does the shrinking distance between the “local” and the “global” require more cross-cultural insight in U.S. newsrooms? What happens
in a world where news and commentary are regularly unhinged from fixed locales, where one can read, listen to, or watch media from any part of the world while in any part of the world? A panel of journalists from mainstream, ethnic, and international outlets discusses how answers to these questions influence story ideas, news content, reportorial and editorial
worldviews, and audiences.
Moderated by Corey Takahashi, freelance journalist (Newsday, VIBE, Public Radio International); guest journalists: blogger, reporter, and journalism
instructor Doug McGill (The McGill Report, The Glocalist, former staff reporter for The New York Times, and former Tokyo, London, and Hong Kong bureau chief for Bloomberg News); Teru Kuwayama, documentary photographer whose recent work has focused on Asia and the Middle East (Time, Newsweek, Fortune, Outside); journalist Anupreeta Das (The Christian Science Monitor, former New Delhi-based staff writer for the national Indian publications Outlook magazine and The Indian Express).
