Book Launch – Decolonizing Journalism Classrooms by Duncan McCue
February 6 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pmFree
On Monday, February 6 from 5:00-6:00pm you are invited to a discussion with Journalism Fellow Alum Duncan McCue on his recent book Decolonizing Journalism: A Guide to Reporting in Indigenous Communities. He will be in conversation with Rhiannon Johnson (CBC) and Karyn Pugliese (National Observer) on Decolonizing Journalism Classrooms.
About the book:
Recent events including the Truth and Reconciliation Commission and the discovery of mass graves at the sites of former residential schools have brought increased coverage of Indigenous Peoples to Canada’s mainstream media outlets. However, there is no guide for current and aspiring journalists to building respectful and reciprocal relationships with Indigenous people and communities when researching and sharing their stories. Written by a leading Indigenous journalist, Duncan McCue, specifically for journalism students in Canada, Decolonizing Journalism delivers practical, up-to-date advice in a guidebook-like text that students will use throughout their studies and careers. Readers will learn how to develop a critical consciousness when engaging with and reporting on Indigenous communities, and will draw insights into the histories, processes, and obstacles central to decolonizing journalism from exclusive interviews with 9 leading Indigenous journalists.
Books will be available for sale and can also be purchased in advance through Oxford University Press.
