Ammina Kothari, School of Journalism Doctoral Candidate
School of Journalism Research Colloquium
Wednesday, April 6
Ernie Pyle Lounge (2nd Floor) Ernie Pyle Hall
This talk focuses on the relationship between journalists and non-governmental organizations and its effect on the coverage of HIV/AIDS in Tanzania. Drawing from interviews with Tanzanian journalists and NGO officials working on HIV/AIDS, I will discuss how lack of resources has increased journalists' dependency on NGOs for information about HIV/AIDS; opening up opportunities for publication of NGO generated content as journalistic reporting.
