During each “Media Salons: Understanding Public Interest Journalism” event, we present a public interest journalist, along with his or her current project (i.e., documentary film, book, blog, etc.) – and Phil Q&A Oprah-style with each guest.  The events are fun, engaging and informative—an opportunity to learn more about the journalists themselves and to find out about important projects.

Each Media Salon drives towards the primary goal of answering two basic overarching questions of the series: What is public interest journalism?  And, how is it being currently practiced?   To stay up-to-date with our events, please join our e-newsletter mailing list.
