“From Whence We Came to Where We’re Going”

Posted by Julie Willbrand on September 12, 2008

During this symposium, which took place Wednesday afternoon in the Reynolds Alumni Center, authors of the soon-to-be-published 1908:  Birth of a Profession discussed everything from immigrant voices to sexism in journalism in the year 1908. 

Some of the more poignant points made were:

“The thing I keep thinking about is how can we get to these rich, rich, rich documents… which are so important as we consider the role of immigrants today?” ~Berkley Hudson

“When we do start to talk about journalistic ideas that span cultures, they are always fallible and never complete.” ~Hans Ibold (PhD ’08)

The symposium was well-attended and guests had the privilege of hearing from eight contributing authors.
