Frank LoMonte, Director, Brechner Center for Freedom of Information

Add to Calendar4:00 pm – 6:00 pm

The #metoo movement, Black Lives Matter and other citizen advocacy movements are demanding greater accountability from those in power.  At this moment in history, universities have a chance either to be leaders or laggards.  Higher-ed institutions say they want to produce engaged, participatory citizens.  Participation starts at home, and it starts with transparent and accountable campuses where stakeholders have prompt access to civically essential information.  This event is free and open to the public.   #PulliamCtr #TalksAndArts

Adrienne Russell, Mary Laird Wood Professor of Journalism and the Environment, Department of Communication at the University of Washington.

Add to Calendar4:00 pm – 6:10 pm

In the digital era, mediated communication is changing fast and eating up ever greater shares of real-world power.  Journalism, rocked by change, remains one of the most contested sites of communication power, an expanded space where citizens, protesters, tech developers and hackers, along with political operatives, foreign meddlers, and software bots, directly shape the news.  While there is reason for alarm in the red-hot era of misinformation and so-called fake news, there is also evidence that a more robust journalism is being forged in the heat.  Adrienne will talk about her research on the contemporary confluence of journalism and activism, the ways reporters covering politics across media and genres have taken cues from activist communication and are liberating journalism from professional pracitces that have failed to reliably serve the public interest.  This event is free and open to the public.   #PulliamCtr #TalksAndArts
