This course focuses on the intersection between food and media. In recent years food has become a hot topic on TV, the internet, and printed media. Students learn through hands-on practice with different kinds of media, including digital video. This multi-faceted course gives students a solid foundation in understanding Italy’s unique media environment as well as the opportunity to utilize Rome (and Italy) as a living laboratory for producing a final portfolio of journalistic writings. Students also complete an original video research project (a documentary production) based on student interests. Guest lecturers include local and international journalists, writers and bloggers.
