On Thursday, November 5th, the Tow Center for Digital Journalism hosts Farai Chideya and Josh Begley of The Intercept, along with Columbia Journalism School’s  Marguerite Holloway for a Tow Tea on “Parsing Tech Talk.”  The discussion will focus on tips and strategies for effectively reporting on science, medicine and technology – as well as how best to communicate these complex topics to a general audience.

Race and Digital Media

Online publishing is no longer simply the open democratic space we were promised in the early days of the Internet. The media environment certainly allows for certain new forms of free expression, and has created opportunities for stories and voices that may not have found an audience in more traditional publishing.

On Wednesday, November 11, a panel of both academic and non-academic commentators on and practitioners of new media publishing will speak both about the contemporary situation of web publishing as well as their professional trajectories within the new media environment.
