The students of Lisa Irby’s Journalism 431, are hosting a poster presentation/reception, Thursday from 9-10:30 a.m. in the CADD lobby.  The event, “Stomping Out Stereotypes,” is a culmination of a semester-long project in which the students tackled a minority group, exploring their own biases and grappling with stereotypes.  The posters aim to portray messages to combat these minority biases.

This is the first time in over five years that Journalism 431, advanced editing, has been offered.  The class examines the journalist and editor’s role in society, taking a deeper look at visual messages and design as well as issues of convergence, photojournalism, ethics and diversity.
