Fall 2024 Special Topic: Reporting New England

In this course, we’ll read, report and produce stories that explore the complex meanings and identities of New England. Through these stories, we’ll consider questions of what it means to be a New Englander, who defines that meaning, and how telling new stories can challenge this definition of identity, heritage and culture. Students should be ready to read critically, think analytically, and report ambitiously. 

This course counts as one of three on-campus upper-level Journalism classes required for English/Journalism majors. 

This course may be taken for upper-level elective credit by any English Department major with permission of the listed instructor
