The Local Accountability Journalism Tracker

Capstone project for the M.A. in Liberal Studies program at The Graduate Center, CUNY.

At large, what local news stories through the years have covered social issues or criminal activities and have led to major accountability or change? The Local Accountability Journalism Tracker begins to answer that question by curating local news stories that resulted in substantial accountability or change.

Journalism and COVID-19: The Toll of a Pandemic

Independent study project for the Interactive Technology and Pedagogy certificate program at The Graduate Center, CUNY. Published on PEN America’s website.

Journalism and COVID-19: The Toll of a Pandemic aims to humanize and detail the toll of the coronavirus on journalism in the United States. The project pays tribute to journalists and media professionals whose lives were cut short due to COVID, focuses on five of the U.S. states with among the most negatively affected newsrooms, and highlights incidents of free press threats that have a direct relation to the coronavirus outbreak.
