Princeton’s journalism program launched an innovative course last summer, sponsored by the Humanities Council’s Ferris Seminars in Journalism and the Seeger Center for Hellenic Studies. Students traveled to Greece for five weeks to act as eyewitnesses to history, reporting on the continuing refugee crisis in Athens and on the island of Lesbos. Joe Stephens, Ferris Professor of Journalism in Residence and a veteran investigative reporter for The Washington Post, and three of his students will explain what they discovered while working as foreign correspondents. NPR News correspondent and former Ferris Professor Deborah Amos will report on what she has discovered about the crisis right here in New Jersey.
Co-sponsored by the PIIRS Research Community, Migration: People and Cultures Across Borders, and by the Humanities Council.
