How do you commit an act of journalism for people who aren't expecting one? What happens when news is shared beyond traditional formats? This class will focus on the history and practice of information sharing in unconventional spaces, through media such as video games, graffiti, Snapchat, and performance. Students will also learn about how formats dictate content, public versus private space, and ways to spot untapped opportunities for digital and real-world journalism distribution. Students will be expected to research and create their own public project that will surprise, delight, and inform specific groups of people. This is journalism at its most unexpected.
