Rightsizing Journalism History 
September 20, 12:00-1:00 PM
223 Gregory Hall

Dr. Melita M. Garza, an associate professor in Texas Christian University's Department of Journalism, will discuss the forthcoming Routledge Companion to American Journalism History, a volume that re-imagines American journalism history across forms, formats, and voices. Aiming to rightsize and re-conceptualize the field, this volume investigates journalism’s past across multiple fault lines, including gender, ethnicity, race, and citizenship status, highlighting areas of journalism history that need further treatment. In sum, this book is an inclusive effort that recognizes that journalism history is more than major metropolitan newspapers, network broadcasts, and “big men” (and a few “big women”) in history. In so doing, it seeks to put all of “American” journalism on a level playing field.
