The 2016 presidential campaign was a long, rough slough that laid open enormous race, class, religion, and gender cultural rifts, and exposed disconnects between we the people and one of our most enduring institutions: the self-described “Fourth Estate”, the press. Where do we go from here? How do we relearn to trust one another, and the news? Yes, words and images matter--but whose words? Which images?
Join moderator Coy Barefoot and panelists: communications law expert Blake Morant, dean of the George Washington School of Law and a double ‘Hoo; national political correspondent and former Fulbright Fellow, Terrell Starr; UVA Department of Anthropology professor George Mentore; and UVA Media Studies professor Aniko Bodroghkozy, as they explore answers to these questions.
Dinner will be provided.
