DMJ470, Sec. 1 Ottaway Seminar
Instructor:  Eyal Press

Nationally known visiting journalists use their expertise and experience to teach students about the problems and issues that face reporters and the press.  Professors have included foreign correspondents, literary journalists, sportswriters, and high-ranking editors.

The Spring 2016 Ottaway seminar will be taught by Eyal Press. Reporters often face the challenge of writing about emotionally freighted subjects that divide Americans into fiercely polarized camps. What are the peculiar challenges of writing about abortion, police shootings, the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, campus rape, and other controversial topics? How can reporters cover them in a way that is evenhanded? Is being perfectly evenhanded always desirable -- or even possible? And how might reporters' own feelings and personal experiences shape their approach? In this seminar, students will be exposed to the work of journalists who have navigated these questions in different ways. Over the course of the semester, students will be expected to apply these lessons to their own work by producing an ambitious piece of reporting on a divisive subject of their own choosing.
