The McGraw Seminar in Writing: Writing about Economic Upheaval that Upends Our Lives

Pallavi Gogoi

Back to "Spring 2023" courses

The pandemic is reshaping the economy in countless ways, bringing a series of "records," "firsts" and "worsts" as the workforce and workplace go through dramatic changes. Exploring the roles that race, income and gender play in how people experience the economy and make personal decisions has always been fascinating and is even more so today. This course will examine how journalists cover economic upheaval wrought during a momentous time in our history. Students will learn how to find and analyze data and use reporting and research techniques to discover, write and produce captivating stories of the economy and people's lives.

If the course fills, you may email Margo Bresnen, Journalism Program Manager, at mbresnen@princeton.edu to be put on a waitlist. Please include a paragraph explaining your interest in the course.
