Local Reporting: Paris as a Case Study

Back to "Spring 2017" courses

Students will learn the basics of local reporting by plunging into Parisian life, from afar and on the ground. They will explore how small intimate places in a city can have larger meaning for an entire society, including the 2017 French presidential election, gender politics and religion, and terrorism.

We will examine what makes certain spaces—a multi-ethnic suburb of Paris, a museum, or a building—more controversial or problematic than others. Students will produce a body of journalistic work based on historical and archival research, interviews, investigation, and field work conducted during spring break in Paris, where the students will maintain a class blog.

Application deadline is 5 p.m., November 22, 2016.
