Urban Journalism

Spring 2019

Taught By: Lauren Walsh

Section: A

CRN: 6581

Credits: 4

This course in “urban journalism” explores some of the ways that our city is represented in the media, primarily in print and photography. We read about the journalistic coverage of diverse people and events around New York City, examining hot-button issues surrounding race and class, and considering ways in which crime is covered in the news. Our focus on photojournalism, meanwhile, investigates intricacies and even controversies of photographic representation as we also visit and report on some of the city’s visual offerings, be they formal installations, buildings, or impromptu art. Guest speakers may include NYC journalists, and city-based excursions are an important part of this seminar.
