Columbia Journalism School Showcase
The Columbia Journalism School Showcase is an open house event for students and researchers to share their work with professional journalists, industry partners, entrepreneurs, technologists, academics, and the public.
The showcase will feature data visualization, computational journalism, video and audio storytelling and research. Selected projects will be installed and presented in the Brown Institute for Media Innovation and the lobby of Pulitzer Hall on Tuesday, May 12th, accompanied by an evening reception.
The event creates a space for students to forge connections with those in the industry, and for media professionals to learn about some of the creative and cutting edge ideas informing student work and research at the school. The Tow Center and Brown Institute promote work that challenges traditional forms in journalism and encourages the creative and rigorous use of data-driven journalism, new platforms, and digital technologies.
“We want journalists here to think in a more radical way about breaking out of the set formats of journalism which are being superseded by digital practice,” says Emily Bell, Director of the Tow Center.
Selected projects will be installed and presented in the Brown Institute for Media Innovation and the lobby of Pulitzer Hall on Tuesday, May 12th, accompanied by an evening reception.
