Conversations on Journalism

Informed Citizen seeks to deepen the public’s knowledge and appreciation of the vital connections between democracy, the humanities, journalism, and an informed citizenry. We have partnered with experts from all types of media to talk about important topics like news literacy, local journalism, the future of journalism, and the history of American journalism during periods of political upheaval and change. We hope you join the conversation.
