Job Description

We’re putting together our upcoming issue (due for release in the UK in April and May in the US).

Our British editorial team’s background is strangely enough in US Politics - first at Bristol, Oxford, and Trinity Dublin Universities respectively, then in the Office of Conrgessman Leonard Boswell (IA -3), then on the 2008 Obama Presidential campaign in Petersburg, VA.

To those ends, in these uncertain and unpredictable times for the US press, and indeed freedom of speech more broadly, we very much wanted to provide a platform for young American journalists, hoping to go into political reporting, and shine a light on their feelings with regards what could potentially be a seismic shift in the role of the reporter in the Trump era. What are the hopes and fears? How do your young students feel that the principle of journalistic responsibility to hold Trump to account and shine a light on his (various!) indiscretions applies to the media at large, now, and over the course of his upcoming presidency.

Moreover, how has the democratisation of the internet helped shape your young student’s intentions to pursue a career in journalism? Do the traditional pillars of print still hold as much weight and appeal as they once did for impending graduates, or does the wave of new media - VOX, 538 etc. have progressively more appeal?

We would be very much open to such a piece being authored by one student in particular, however, we are equally as interested in the documentation of a round-table discussion between students.
