Students and faculty members in the School of Journalism have long appreciated the importance of a global outlook. This recently was underscored by a conference in India that was co-organized by colleagues in the school and our Institute for International Journalism.
Four of them just returned from Tirupati, India where the conference, titled “Changing Landscape in Communication with New Media Technologies,” took place. The conference was organized by associate professor Yusuf Kalyango and assistant professor Jatin Srivastava, in cooperation with The Women’s University Department of Communications in India.
In the video below, Jatin Srivastava discusses the conference from a number of perspectives, including the role played by media scholars who have taken part in various Study of the U.S. Institute programs organized over the last several years by the school’s Institute for International Journalism, headed up by Yusuf Kalyango.
Associate professors Mary Rogus and Michelle Ferrier, who also serves as Associate Dean for the Scripps College of Communication, also attended.
As the director of the school, I’m very proud that our reach extends well beyond Ohio and even the nation. This conference illustrates once again how we in the E.W. Scripps School of Journalism take part, and even shape, the global conversation about the changes in media being experienced all around the world.
