Zelizer Begins Fellowship at Harvard University's Joan Shorenstein Center on the Press, Politics and Public Policy


Professor Barbie Zelizer begins her stint at the Joan Shorenstein Center on the Press, Politics and Public Policy, Harvard University where she joins the illustrious company of four other scholars and writers named by the Center as this year's Spring fellows. She will write a book focusing on published photographs of people on the brink of death in contemporary United States journalism.

The Shorenstein Center, based at Harvard's JFK School of Government, is dedicated to exploring the intersection of press, politics and public policy in theory and practice, and strives to bridge the gap between journalists and scholars. "Our fellows have a particularly strong international dimension this semester, which is appropriate in our very global media world, and we hope to take full advantage of their wide range of knowledge and experiences," said Alex S. Jones, the center's director [as reported by the Associated Press, February 2].
