COURSE DESCRIPTION 

In this fractious age of Forever War, careful and contextual reporting from foreign postings and unconventional battlefields has never been more important. Nor has it been more challenging. Just as war has become asymmetric, so has journalism. This course will examine the history, impact and practice of international news coverage, especially reporting from war zones and conflict areas. We’ll also be looking at real-time reporting on the coronavirus pandemic --- its own kind of "war zone."


Course Description

In this senior capstone course, students will explore solutions to problems created by our current food systems. We will critically examine recent movements in organic, local, and sustainable agriculture and discuss how we might engage in transforming our individual, institutional, community, and political relationships with food and farming.
