Coffee @ The Commons: #MeToo Media Coverage

10:00-11:00am CT Friday, October 1, 2021 Online

Presented in partnership with the Hall Center for the Humanities

What is the role of journalists in reporting stories shared through #MeToo?
What happens in cases when sources do not agree on events?
What extra considerations must journalists make when interviewing vulnerable populations?

Irin Carmon is a senior correspondent at New York Magazine. In 2017-18, Carmon worked with the Washington Post and reporter Amy Brittain to break the news of sexual harassment and assault allegations against Charlie Rose, as well as CBS's knowledge of his conduct. She speaks frequently on women's leadership and rights.

Coffee @ The Commons is a conversation-style event, which offers space for informal dialogue with visiting scholars. Conversation Guide: Patricia Weems Gaston, KU School of Journalism & Mass Communications.

Irin Carmon will deliver the Emily Taylor and Marilyn Stokstad Women’s Leadership Lecture at 7:30pm CT on Thursday, September 30 for the Hall Center for the Humanities.
