Deputy curator of the Nieman Foundation for Journalism, editor of Nieman Reports


This session, organized in collaboration with the Nieman Foundation for Journalism at Harvard University, explores how in an age of unprecedented polarization and partisanship journalists and other storytellers are engaging citizens in ways that encourage constructive debate. The presentations and discussion chronicles how newsrooms and other organizations experimenting with new formats and new technologies that inform and communicate with audiences who hold diverging political views and come from different socio-economic groups.
