Beyond Headlines:GRMN Print
This course explores the German print media landscape between yellow press and feuilleton. We will discuss the different types of textes like reportage, commentary or portrait. We analyse texts, write our own articles, and meet German speaking people in Middlebury for interviews and reportages. We learn how to edit, to text headlines and captions. Twice a week we’ll develop in editorial staff meetings our own magazine „Quasi Nr. 2“, which will be designed by a professional Art Director in Berlin.
Required text: Walther von La Roche: Einführung in den praktischen Journalismus (19th ed.) (Econ Verlag 2013).
