Journalism in Crisis

A special issue of The Chronicle Review, the magazine insert of The Chronicle of Higher Education, is devoted to the crisis in journalism. Carlin Romano makes a compelling case for a philosophy of journalism and even outlines how a basic course in such would be constructed. Michael Schudson calls for university-based reporting as a way to keep journalism alive. Other scholars weigh in on the subject of how the academy can help revitalize/rescue the field. The largest piece is made up of 18 voices addressing the effect of a declining news media on higher education." Kathleen Hall Jamieson, Henry Jenkins, Laura Kipnis, and Stanford Ungar are among the respondents.

The Chronicle of Higher Education, is available as an e-resource from the Library homepage or in paper at the ASC Library.
