The Ottaway Seminar this fall is tentatively titled “The Kids’ Story: Telling Stories of American Inequity Through the Lens of Youth.” The professor is Sarah Carr, a contributing editor at the Hechinger Report, former investigative editor at the Boston Globe (focusing on education and equity), and author of Hope Against Hope, for which she embedded in schools in New Orleans to tell the story of students’ and teachers’ experiences after Hurricane Katrina.
The 3-credit class meets Wednesdays from 4-6:50 p.m. and is appropriate for Journalism and other majors who want to write about the topics. It is funded by the James H. Ottaway Sr. Visiting Professor of Journalism Program.
