Who Is the Journalist? The Past, Present, and Future of News, on display through September 2 at Northwestern University Library in Evanston. If the powers that be had gone to such lengths to devalue the word “journalism,” how would they reflect my beloved profession and its heritage to the masses?
The developer and curator of the exhibit was Lavine’s predecessor as dean, Loren Ghiglione, a wise and thoughtful man who’s now a full-time professor at Medill. Using a fascinating array of artifacts, clippings, books, videos and other materials, the free, self-guided walk-through raises thought-provoking questions for anyone who cares where the news business is headed.
