March 31-April 4
The 2008 presidential election is historic in more ways than one. More people than ever are turning to new media – blogs, YouTube, social networking sites – to learn about the candidates, engage in dialogue and directly participate in the campaigns.
The West Virginia University Perley Isaac Reed School of Journalism will examine the impact of new media on this year’s election and the political process during “Journalism Week 2008: New Media. New Democracy,” March 31-April 4.
