The McGraw Seminar in Writing: Writing about Immigrants and Refugees

Deborah Sontag

Back to "Spring 2019" courses

Stories about immigrants and refugees are stories about journeys: about the dreams and struggles of families, and the conflicts and accommodations of nations. They are rich in idea, character, and plot, and they cross newsroom "desk" boundaries to involve international, political, legal, labor, and race reporting. In this seminar students will become specialized reporters on one of the most global and multidisciplinary beats in journalism. They will learn to write with depth and clarity about this mega-trend of our time, and collaborate on a class investigative project with the aspiration to publish.

If the course fills, students may email Margo Bresnen, Journalism Program Manager, at mbresnen@princeton.edu to be put on a wait list. Please include a paragraph explaining your interest in the course.
If you have submitted an application for the JRN certificate but are unable to enroll in a seat for certificate students, email Margo Bresnen at mbresnen@princeton.edu.
