U. Oregon Journalism School to Increase Focus on Gender, Diversity, Ethics

“commitment to diversity, inclusion, and social justice”

The University of Oregon Journalism School is obviously training the next generation of mainstream media reporters.

The Washington Free Beacon reports:

University of Oregon Journalism School Updating Curriculum to Increase Focus on Gender, Diversity, Ethics

The University of Oregon School of Journalism and Communication has opened a job search for a tenure-track “Assistant Professor of Media and Intersectionality,” who will teach to an updated undergraduate curriculum that will include “required courses squarely focused on gender, diversity, and ethics.”

The posting on a higher education recruitment site noted that an ideal candidate’s “[p]rimary research should focus on topics related to the intersections of diversity and inclusion—how media and communication influence, and are influenced by, the intersections of factors such as ethnicity, class, gender, and identity.”

“We are seeking candidates who will be able to teach courses in our media studies major while contributing directly—through research, teaching, and service—to the school’s commitment to diversity, inclusion, and social justice,” the school wrote.

The new “diversity”-focused curriculum is set to be rolled out beginning in Fall 2018, and university administrators said they are still determining what exactly will be included in the coursework.

…an ideal candidate’s “[p]rimary research should focus on topics related to the intersections of diversity and inclusion—how media and communication influence, and are influenced by, the intersections of factors such as ethnicity, class, gender, and identity.”

Dang, I hope she has a good road map, to navigate all those intersections!

Ethics? You’re kidding!

My take: at UofO, journalism is about propaganda not truth.
