On Tuesday, November 7, 2017, the Humanities Council’s Ferris Seminars in Journalism and the Department of Anthropology will present an evening of storytelling with radio and podcast creator Joe Richman, Ferris Professor of Journalism and founder of Radio Diaries, NPR’s longest-running documentary series. For more than two decades, Radio Diaries has trained ordinary people to document their lives in sound.
With this approach, Richman and his team have pioneered a new form of citizen journalism and produced some of the most acclaimed and innovative documentaries ever heard on public radio. Richman will bring us on a listening tour of stories from inside prisons, retirement homes, and by teenagers from South Africa to Saudi Arabia to Alabama.
The presentation will begin at 4:30 pm in 219 Aaron Burr Hall.
