The hackshackers.com glossary is a great place for May/June journalism or Web production grads to browse for educational inspiration.
As summer goes on, I’ll add more links here and on my bookmark list at http://delicious.com/bstepno — add /jpop (portrayal of journalists in film, fiction and popular culture) or /104 (news writing and reporting) or /326 (Web production ) to the end of that address to narrow the list to course-specific links.
For entertainment, and for students in my Images of the Journalist in Popular Culture class:
- I’m expanding the “Video” tab on this site to include more than a dozen separate pages with journalism-related videos and classic films. Take a look. Full-length movies, trailers and clips are organized by decade or by special topics. Citizen Kane gets its own page. The menu headings “Video” and “Newspaper Films” are “clickable” pages in their own right.
- I’ve built a page at my JHeroes blog listing novels that feature journalist characters, from classic American literature to some recent bloggers-versus-zombies adventures.
- Old-time radio portrayals of journalists are still the main feature of JHeroes (“Newspaper Heroes on the Air”).
