Journalism under Fire
This year, we're offering students here in New Mexico and around the world unique ways to engage with Journalism under Fire. As below, we have a number of dedicated sessions for students to interact directly with some of our speakers. And, new for 2020, we're pleased to launch four News Literacy Modules that cover the fundamentals of journalism and address key issues and insights from the past two Journalism under Fire conferences:
1. NextGenNews: An Introduction. What is journalism? What do journalists actually do? What is the news – and what is newsworthy? What is fake news, misinformation, and how have conspiracy theories increasingly infected the news cycle? What are journalism ethics? And perhaps most of all, why is a free and trustworthy press so important to a democracy? Click on the image below.
3. Imagery and Photos. What is photojournalism and how do photojournalists capture their stories? What is the field of digital forensics and why is it important? And what role do political cartoonists play in the media landscape? Click on the image below.
2. Modern Media: Pressures and Opportunities. How has Big Tech, including social media platforms, reshaped the media landscape? What role does Artificial Intelligence play in the media? Why are journalists persecuted around the world? Click on the image below.
