KU journalism students to host virtual summit on diversity and social media

LAWRENCE – Students from the William Allen White School of Journalism and Mass Communications at The University of Kansas will host an online virtual summit entitled “Telling Stories of Diversity in the Digital Age” on December 4 in Stauffer-Flint Hall, Room 100 on The University of Kansas campus.

The summit begins at 11 a.m. CST/ Noon EST with an introduction by Associate Professor Simran Sethi, who teaches Diversity in Media, a course cross-listed in the schools of journalism and social welfare. “I wanted to highlight the ways in which journalists and non-journalists alike are participating in a broader range of storytelling through the use of Twitter, blogs, Facebook and other digital platforms like the iPad. This course, culminating in the digital summit, is the ideal format for a deep exploration of participatory media and opportunities for the democratization of storytelling.”
