Movement Journalism

Fall 2022

Taught By: Kia Gregory

Section: AX

CRN: 14278

Credits: 4

This class focuses on movement journalism, which has been defined as journalism that meets the needs of communities directly affected by injustice. It is journalism that also challenges the status quo of injustice and inequality, which legacy media, in its pretense of objectivity and its single narratives, often upholds in this country. During the course, we will read and discuss noted works by journalists of the past and present in the context of history, power and challenges of movement journalism, and as it relates to journalism excellence, we will examine key skills of journalism excellence such as critical thinking, empathy, proportionality, and ably engaging with people in their communities. Our class will namely serve as a newsroom, in which students will report and produce news stories in the city that represent movement journalism. This course satisfies the Reporting and Craft Elective requirement for the Journalism+Design major.
