The Changing Face of America: Immigration From the Ground Up
The Graduate School of Journalism and the Warren Institute at Berkeley Law are collaborating to host a five-day institute, The Changing Face of America: Immigration from the Ground Up, for professional print, online, or broadcast journalists on covering immigration, a divisive issue in debates over law enforcement, education, health care and the economy. The institute will be held in Berkeley, CA on November 13-17, 2011.
Selected applicants will be designated as New York Times Fellows and will be provided the opportunity to hear from leading experts on immigration law and policy. Speakers will include : scholars, top-notch journalists, law enforcement officials, community leaders, legislators and immigrants themselves. Participants will come away with well-balanced perspectives, new sources, essential reporting tools, and innovative story ideas to deepen their coverage and to share with their newsroom.
The seminar is designed for journalists who have some background on immigration but seek to enhance their knowledge and skills. The institute will provide lodging, meals, and a need-based travel stipend for fellows. The deadline for the application is August 22.
