This course will examine the phenomenon of innovation, examining current disruptions in news media, how the industry’s failure to innovate in a timely fashion is radically reshaping it, and why innovation is more necessary now than ever. We will look at great journalistic innovators throughout history, the causes and effects of major journalistic innovations — including innovations in form, style, and content — and the industry’s response to new and disruptive technologies through the years. We will examine what new media are doing to reinvent journalism in the age of the Web and social media.
