|This Saturday, October 16 at 11am ET is the second Journalism webinar on “News, Reporting, and Ethics” as a part of The Harvard Crimson’s Fall Webinar Series.|
We will be joined by Deb Pastner, director of photo and multimedia at the Star Tribune in Minneapolis, who will examine how the racial reckoning in the wake of George Floyd’s death has altered the relationship between photojournalists and their subjects. She will explore ways to reframe and renew that association.
The Fall Webinar Series gives high school students the amazing opportunity to work alongside Harvard undergraduates. We are excited to teach you what we know about journalism and college admissions! As a reminder, the series will run from September 18 to December 11.
Students will be able to learn from industry professionals and accomplished college journalists as they prepare for their transition to university. Each one-hour webinar will start with 30 minutes of workshop and then conclude with a Q&A where students may engage with our guest speakers and Crimson Editors. Don’t miss out on this exciting free opportunity!
