Dr. Matt Waters' article "Earth, Water, and Friendship with the King: Argos and Persia in the Mid-fifth Century" was published in "Extraction and Control: Studies in Honor of Matthew W. Stolper," ed. M. Kozuh et al., The Oriental Institute of the University of Chicago, 2014, pages 331-336.
Dr. John Mann's article "Slough-Keetcha: Spokane Garry in History and Memory" recently received the Charles Gates Award from the Washington State Historical Society for the best article to appear in Pacific Northwest Quarterly during the previous year. The article was based on research Mann completed during his 2012-13 sabbatical and was made possible in part by funds awarded in conjunction with the Max Schoenfeld Distinguished Professorship in the College of Arts and Sciences which he held that year.
Others on that panel were Fred Brown, a past national president of the Society of Professional Journalists and currently the vice-chair of SPJ’s Ethics Committee; Kim Nguyen, digital site director for 7NEWS in Denver; and Jessica Plautz, travel editor at Mashable in New York City.
The symposium brought together academic ethicists and working professionals from around the country to exchange ideas on these topics and to discuss their different perspectives on the issues. Keynote talks were given by New York University professor Jay Rosen, a longtime media critic who recently became an adviser to First Look Media, a venture headed by Glenn Greenwald (who published the documents leaked by Edward Snowden); and Steve Buttry, digital transformations editor for Digital First Media, which operates some 800 multi-platform media outlets in 18 states. Buttry said that traditional journalism ethical values remain valid if they are updated to deal with the questions raised by the digital age. Rosen argued that "point-of-view" journalism is now both necessary and valid, and that new ethics standards should apply to it.
