Each year Amherst LEADS incorporates a community event into our curriculum around a timely theme or issue. This year we chose the intersections of changing media, news, communication and information.
This year's event will feature a panel conversation exploring how the ways we receive and interact with news and information have changed and will continue to change. The panelists include legendary Boston Globe sportswriter and frequent contributor to ESPN Bob Ryan, Pulitzer Prize winner and New York Times journalist Kate Zernike, Associate Professor of Emerging Media Studies at Boston University Jacob Groshek and Senior Politics Reporter at VOX Media and past contributor to MTV News Jane Coaston.
Cole Assembly Room is located inside of Converse Hall at Amherst College - 100 Boltwood Ave, Amherst, MA, 01002.
