Speaker

Jay Rosen
Jay Rosen is a critic and writer whose primary interest is the press in a democracy. A member of the NYU faculty since 1986, he is currently an associate professor of Journalism and chair of the Journalism Department. He teaches courses in media criticism, cultural journalism, press ethics and the journalistic tradition, among other subjects. His newest project is PressThink, a weblog about "the journalism we have, and the journalism we need." It began in September, 2003 and can be found at http://www.pressthink.org.

Since 1990, Rosen has been a leading figure in the reform movement known as "public journalism" (also called civic journalism), which calls on the press to take a more active role in strengthening citizenship, improving political debate and reviving public life. From 1993 to 1997, he was the Director of the Project on Public Life and the Press, funded by the Knight Foundation and housed at NYU.
