SJMC writers in the media this week

A quick run-down of SJMC students and faculty who have been featured in the media this week:

  • Professor Deborah Blum published an article on “Poison and Progress” in the Wall Street Journal (drawn from the research from her latest book, The Poisoner’s Handbook.
  • Professor Stephen Ward was quoted in a Washington Post article on the difficulties of reporting from inside a humanitarian crisis of such devastating proportions as the Haiti earthquake.
  • And finally, one of our newest pro-track MA students, Saideh Jamshidi, recently had an article published on (the European Journalism Center) on the Jaras news site and the difficulties of covering politics in Iran.

Give them a look if you like and feel free to chat about the way our students and faculty strive to connect their work here in the School of Journalism & Mass Communication to unfolding events in the  world at large.
