Four acclaimed journalists will speak to the IC community Monday, April 28, as they accept national honors. Jeremy Scahill, whose “Dirty Wars” documentary was nominated for an Oscar, will be on campus -- while Glenn Greenwald (dubbed “the world’s most controversial journalist” by CNN this Sunday) will appear via video.
Scahill and Greenwald will be inducted into the newly-established I. F. Stone Hall of Fame as part of an expanded Izzy Award ceremony, set for 7pm in Park Hall Auditorium.
Also appearing on campus will be John Carlos Frey and Nick Turse, investigative journalists who are sharing the sixth annual Izzy Award for “outstanding achievement in independent media” in calendar year 2013.
Last week four students from the Park Media Lab accepted two national awards at an awards ceremony in Las Vegas for the 2014 BEA (Broadcast Education Association) Annual Festival of Media Arts.
Anthony Adornato, assistant professor in the Department of Journalism, served on two panels at the 2014 Broadcast Education Association (BEA) Convention in Las Vegas.
BEA is the professional association for “professors, industry professionals and graduate students who are interested in teaching and research related to electronic media and multimedia enterprises."
Adornato participated in the following panels: Out and On-Air: Openly Gay TV News Professionals with Real World Advice and the Twitter’s staying power and how to teach your students to be responsible using it.
He also gave a presentation at the conference titled, "Using Vine to Teach Video Sequencing.”
Stephen Tropiano, director of the Los Angeles Program and associate professor of screen studies, is a juror for the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences for the 7th Annual Television Academy Honors, which recognizes television "with a conscience--programming that inspires, informs, motivates, and even has the power to change lives," and the College Television Awards. In addition, Tropiano is currently serving as one of three judges for the Richard Wall Memorial Book Award sponsored by the Theatre Library Association.
