№ 239/2010 from Jul 15, 2010
Graduates of the European Journalism Fellowships (EJF) training program at Freie Universität will be giving presentations about their research-based media studies on July 20. Since October 2009 twelve journalists from various EU countries, Russia, and the U.S.A. have been working as fellows of the program on individual research projects. This is the 11th class to graduate. The final presentations will be held in the offices of the BMW Foundation Herbert Quandt in Berlin-Mitte. The event is public, but advance registration is requested.
The projects of the journalists range from “The activities of the Stasi in Communist Poland” or “Family policy and social journalism in Germany” to the question of what Finnish newspapers might learn from German newspapers’ online solutions.
The International Center for Journalism is calling for applications to its 13th EJF program (2011/2012). The application deadline is November 1, 2010. The EJF program is one of three training programs at the International Center for Journalism located at the Institute for Media and Communication Studies at Freie Universität Berlin. The training program gives outstanding journalists an opportunity to leave their daily editorial operations for some time and return to study at a university. Each of the fellows completes a program, which focuses on a pre-defined project: an individual research project.
