Writing Workshop

Reflecting on more than a decade of work in refugee resettlement,  immigration education, and journalism, Lauren Markham sheds light on the stories and myths behind and beneath the representation of migration in the news.  Join her as she digs beneath the headlines to understand the ways that journalists and editors frame migration stories and related policy matters. She asks us all to reflect on our own choice of words as they speak and write about these same issues on campus--and beyond.
