RS Professor Susan B. Ridgely was highlighted in this news story about our Religion, Journalism and International Affairs partnership. Check it out, and the calendar of upcoming events!
“Ridgely and Michael Wagner, an associate professor of journalism, have partnered as recipients of a two-year grant from the Luce/ACLS Program in Religion, Journalism and International Affairs designed to foster new connections between scholars and journalists covering issues of global importance. Workshops began in September 2017 and are held monthly while classes are in session. Topics have ranged from ‘Building Relationships with Journalists’ to ‘Religion’s Role in Fake News’, and upcoming events will address how to forge interdisciplinary collaboration and explore cult narrative in media coverage of the Branch Davidians.”
