Welcome

I tell my students that the real mission of journalism is to keep us talking so we don't kill each other. I believe that value of media tools and processes can help individuals build community, solve problems and transmit values. To that end, I work with computer science educators to broaden participation in computing, so that everyone has access to the 21st century marketplace of ideas.

By way of introduction

My professional background is in magazine journalism and public relations. I have been a full-time college professor since 1990, and I currently chair the Department of African-American Studies at The College of New Jersey.. However, my appointment is in the English department, and my teaching is in the journalism/professional writing major and interactive multimedia majors. I currently teach courses on news games, social media, and race, gender and the news. I will be piloting a course on health and environmental journalism in the fall related to my current research project. A more detailed biography is here. My TCNJ website has information about my courses and student work. You can also check out a bibliography of my published research and journalism.
