1 min read

The Joan Shorenstein Center on the Press, Politics and Public Policy, located at the Harvard Kennedy School, recently announced four spring fellows for 2010.

“The world of the media is expanding at breakneck speed, and this semester’s group of fellows and our visiting faculty member reflect the stunning diversity of what is now included when we use the term ‘news media,’” said Alex S. Jones, director of the Shorenstein Center.

The fellows who will work on research projects include Deborah Amos, Shorenstein Center Goldsmith Fellow; Steven Guanpeng Dong, director of the Global Journalism Institute at Tsinghua University and professor of political communications at the China National School of Administration; Gene Gibbons, a former executive editor of and former Reuters chief White House correspondent; and Peter Maass, Shorenstein Center Reidy Fellow and contributing writer for The New York Times Magazine.

In addition, Zephyr Teachout, associate professor of law at Fordham University, will be a visiting assistant professor of public policy.
