Veteran newspaper editor James O’Shea and media experts from the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting in Washington, D.C., discuss “Journalism in the 21st Century” at Elmhurst College.

The panelists include: O’Shea, editor of the Chicago News Cooperative, former managing editor of the Chicago Tribune, and author of The Deal From Hell: How Moguls and Wall Street Plundered Great American Newspapers; Pulitzer Center Senior Editor Tom Hundley, a former Chicago Tribune foreign correspondent; and Pulitzer Center New Media Strategist Maura Youngman.

The panel discussion kicks off a two-year partnership between the College and the non-profit Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting, which promotes in-depth engagement with global affairs through sponsorship of quality international journalism and a program of outreach and education. The partnership will offer programs on new media convergence and a new approach to international reporting to journalism students and faculty across Illinois as well as to the general public.

The College’s mission is to prepare its students for meaningful and ethical work in a multicultural, global society.
