This seminar will focus on the tools journalists use to cover hostile governments. International correspondents face particular obstacles in writing about countries and governments that do not want to be written about. This course will explore how reporters--both inside and outside their respective countries--deal with efforts to avoid transparency and obstruct independent journalism. Students will write blog posts based on research, reporting, and aggregation. This is not about war coverage.
If the course fills, students may email Margo Bresnen, Journalism Program Manager, at email@example.com to be put on a wait list. Please include a paragraph explaining your interest in the course.
