Inclusive Journalism Project
News reports dealing with poverty and homelessness typically speak about the poor and the homeless… sometimes with them… but never to them. The Inclusive Journalism Project is a research initiative based at the Concordia Centre for Broadcasting and Journalism Studies whose goal is to work to change this. Thanks to support from donors to our crowd-funding campaign and The Concordian newspaper (theconcordian.com), we hired three students to produce and publish stories on poverty and homelessness. The stories were produced in collaboration with their subjects; the specific story topics emanated from what their subjects were interested in talking about and the story-telling style is dialogic.
UQAM professor and CCBJS associate member Dr. Chantal Francoeur interviews Dr. Greg Nielsen, Dr. Mike Gasher, Matt D’Amours and Frank St-hilaire about the Inclusive Journalism Project. See episode “Parler aux pauvres et non parler des pauvres” http://www.choq.ca/emissions/formats-deconstruits
