How #MeToo is Changing Culture, Politics, and Journalism: A Conversation with KUOW’s Sydney Brownstone
February 26 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm$5
Seattle University College of Arts and Sciences and KUOW present How #MeToo is Changing Culture, Politics, and Journalism: A Conversation with KUOW’s Sydney Brownstone on February 26, 6 to 9 p.m. in Campion Ballroom. Sonora Jha, PhD, will facilitate a conversation with Sydney following her presentation. Before and after the program, an interactive resource fair will be open in the lobby featuring local and national community organizations.
What role does empathy play in journalism? Why do sexual assault accusers go to journalists instead of the police? Why does the #MeToo movement keep showing us photographs of sad ladies looking out of windows?
Join award-winning journalist Sydney Brownstone for a look behind the curtain of some of her most complex and impactful reporting on rape and sexual assault. Sydney will open this event with an in-depth examination of how she reports stories involving trauma. Her presentation will include tips for interviewing accusers and the accused, fact checking strategies, insights about self-care for journalists and others close to trauma survivors, analysis of “sad lady” portraits and other clichés in trauma reporting, and more. After her presentation, Sydney will be joined in-conversation by Seattle University Professor Sonora Jha, and then the floor open for audience Q&A.
Doors: 6 p.m.
Resource Fair: 6-7 p.m.
