JOUR 241 - Media and Poverty: The Poor in Journalism and Film


Credits: 4
Planned Offering: Spring

Not open to students with credit for JOUR 240. This course offers an in-depth examination of portrayals of poverty, chiefly in the United States, from the late 19th century to the present through an intensive review of distinguished print journalism, nonfiction books, documentary film, and movies. By consulting social science literature as well, students gain a deeper understanding of the various conceptual paradigms through which poverty has been understood and explained. Staff.
