Professor Zelizer speaks around the country


Professor Barbie Zelizer has been on the road quite a bit this semester. In February she gave two talks at the University of Minnesota, one at the Weisman Art Museum, The Holocaust Through the Camera's Eye, sponsored by the Center for Holocaust and Genocide Studies. Her second talk at the Journalism Center bore the same title as the book she recently edited with Stuart Allen, Journalism After September 11 (Routledge, 2002). At the end of March, Dr. Zelizer gave the Brigance Forum Lecture at Wabash College, in Crawfordsville, Indiana, titled Extraordinary Events, Ordinary Coverage: When Images of the Past Shape Journalism. This week (April 3) she is speaking on Images and Trauma: How Images Shape the News at New York University's International Trauma Studies Center. April 9-11 she delivers a three-part series of lectures at Grand Valley State University in Allendale, Michigan on Photojournalism and How We Remember.
