This is a past event.

Andy Carvin 

When: Wed., April 11, 7:30 p.m. 2012
Price: free
Last summer in Interview magazine, film scribe Aaron Sorkin told New York Times media columnist David Carr: "I don't want [a citizen journalist] any more than I want a citizen doctor." Well, the fact is that citizen journalism is a reality, and its importance is growing. Bystanders, activists and enraged citizens with cellphone cameras, Twitter and blogs document the grisliest of events where professional journalists can't go. No one is better qualified to talk about this than Andy Carvin. At the Dole Institute of Politics (2350 Petefish Drive, Lawrence, 785-864-4900), NPR's chief social-media strategist and longtime organizer of crowd-sourced news aggregation talks about how citizen reporting and social media were used to disseminate news during the Arab Spring, and how they have formed our views and coverage of the protests and violence. The lecture begins at 7:30 p.m. For more information, see doleinstitute.org.
