Issues of faith in public life dominate world news, but religion is often misunderstood or ignored in media coverage. It’s understandable. The world’s religions are the result of hundreds of years of history, prayer and tradition, and this is not easy to reflect and to explain in newspaper, radio, TV or via new-media formats. Many journalists are seeking keys to unlock this complex beat that sparks enormous public interest.
Join a select group of journalists from across the world as they share their insights, resources and strategies for reporting on religion and politics via a six-week online seminar organized by the International Center for Journalists.
“International Coverage of Gender, Health, Education and Religion,” a six-week seminar offered by the International Center for Journalists from September 24 to November 2, will examine effective ways of reporting on gender, health, education and religion.
Journalists from different countries who work together to publish a story on religion are eligible to receive editorial support and a payment of $500 under a new program sponsored by the International Center for Journalists.
