Where Journalism Can Take You: Investigation and Impact

September 30, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm EDT

For 14 months, a team of Boston Globe reporters investigated the nationwide trend of states’ failures to keep dangerous drivers off the road, resulting in additional, and at times fatal crashes. Their three-part report, published in August 2020, earned the 2021 Pulitzer Prize for Investigative Reporting.
Two Emerson alumni  — Deputy Projects Editor Brendan McCarthy ’04 and reporter/editor Evan Allen ’11 — were part of that team, and in this session we will speak with them about collaboration and coordination in a team with different skill sets, their paths since graduation, surprising challenges and obstacles to the work, and what keeps them motivated. Journalism Associate Professor Mark Leccese will moderate.
This virtual event, hosted by the Journalism and Writing, Literature and Publishing departments is free and open to the public. Register on Eventbrite
