In the Press

In collaboration with journalist and anthropologist Brian Goldstone, the Franklin Humanities Institute announces a new journalism and public humanities writing initiative, In the Press. In the Press events will bring together journalists, scholars, and activists to discuss emergent issues in the media, providing theoretical and historical context for current debates.

In addition to these public conversations, future event formats will include workshops geared towards faculty and graduate students, on topics such as writing for public audiences, pitching stories, and working with editors. A third, more theoretical strand will explore genres of writing, investigating the overlaps between academic writing, investigative journalism, and narrative nonfiction.
