Journalism: Media Perspectives Of A Global Generation

Hi all -I’ll be participating on this panel discussion, wednesday april 5 at the New School in NYC. The event is open to the public, and free for students with ID (from all schools)

Journalism: Media Perspectives of a Global Generation

Wednesday, April 5, 6:00 p.m., $8. Webcast and online
discussion at www.online.newschool.edu. Students free.

Location: Theresa Lang Community and Student Center,
55 West 13th Street, 2nd floor.

As the news industry faces unprecedented change, this
panel explores how 21st-century technology and human
migration complicate and enrich the media landscape.
Journalism’s future is seen through three key
questions: How will the generation gap between print
traditionalists and new media pioneers play out in the
future of worldwide news collection, distribution, and
consumption? Why does the shrinking distance between
the “local” and the “global” require more
cross-cultural insight in U.S. newsrooms? What happens
in a world where news and commentary are regularly
unhinged from fixed locales, where one can read,
listen to, or watch media from any part of the world
while in any part of the world? A panel of journalists
from mainstream, ethnic, and international outlets
discusses how answers to these questions influence
story ideas, news content, reportorial and editorial
worldviews, and audiences.

Moderated by Corey Takahashi, freelance journalist
(Newsday, VIBE, Public Radio International); guest
journalists: blogger, reporter, and journalism
instructor Doug McGill (The McGill Report, The
Glocalist, former staff reporter for The New York
Times, and former Tokyo, London, and Hong Kong bureau
chief for Bloomberg News); Teru Kuwayama, documentary
photographer whose recent work has focused on Asia and
the Middle East (Time, Newsweek, Fortune, Outside);
journalist Anupreeta Das (The Christian Science
Monitor, former New Delhi-based staff writer for the
national Indian publications Outlook magazine and The
Indian Express). Co-sponsored by the Wolfson Center
for National Affairs and the Department of Media
Studies and Film.

Was great to see you speak at this – good thing you were there, because the other panelists seemed a little lost. Discussion was way more lightweight than I’d hoped. Anyway, your photos were amazing, and really made the event worthwhile.

Great job, Teru!

Interesting, thought-proviking discussion. If you (others) missed it, check it out via the webcast (as detailed in original posting). I believe the webcast remains available for a bit after the date of the event. The audio’s a little fuzzy, but stepping away from my computer’s speakers made it easier to understand.

Teru, will you be speaking or showing any exhibits of your work in NYC anytime soon?

heyo . still not sure what exactly I was doing there, but thanks.

no idea on future talking/showing, but there’s currently an exhibition of Alexia Foundation photographers at the United Nations visitors center in NYC – I think it’s up for another couple of weeks. It includes some of my work, as well as Marcus Bleasdale, Heidi Bradner, and many more. Details are on the Alexia Foundation website.
