International Journalism

Course Code: JOUR 3000

Academic Year: 2018-2019

This course introduces students to the wider landscape of international journalism, a world in which concepts enshrined in the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms cannot always be taken for granted and where the craft of journalism is often practised under the threat of censorship, economic penalties and violence. Through the use of archival material, monitoring of the internet, case studies and speakers, students will encounter the historic and contemporary giants of the Canadian corps of foreign correspondents and, more importantly, the often unsung heroes of the indigenous media who do not labour under the limited safety umbrella of the more powerful international organizations.
