Next summer’s month-long multimedia workshop in Urbino, Italy is now officially on the books and will be offered as JlMC 390. The dates for the course are June 6 – July 4, 2013.
During the past two summers Greenlee professor, Dennis Chamberlin and a group of students joined others from around the country to participate in the international backpack journalism course. Iowa State University and James Madison are the joint sponsors of the course but it is open to students anywhere in the world. In the past students from China, Japan, Singapore, Turkey and the UK have participated.
This year the group will be limited to 35 students and the student/teacher ratio will remain at 5:1. The faculty consists of seasoned professionals who have over 120 years combined experience in magazine, newspaper and television journalism.
