Professor Barbara Selvin wins Award

Barbara SelvinAssistant Professor Barbara Selvin won the Best Faculty Paper award at the 11th annual Convergence and Society Conference in October 2012 at the University of South Carolina. Her paper, “Teaching the Business of Journalism: A Double Dose of Reality,” argues that journalism schools must teach students how the digital transformation of the industry affects not only how journalism is produced and consumed but also its impact on the financial underpinnings of quality journalism. A condensed version of the paper was published in the October issue of The Convergence Newsletter.
