Where is America headed in the 2018 midterm elections—and beyond?
Go inside the nation’s newsrooms as they cover the midterm elections and gear up for 2020. Guest speakers from political campaigns and advocacy groups will join reporters and editors from The Boston Globe, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, CNN, NPR, Fox News, and BuzzFeed.
Led by Pulitzer Prize winning reporter and director of Northeastern University’s School of Journalism Jonathan Kaufman and Dukakis Center head Theodore Landsmark, the Myra Kraft Open Classroom will feature top editors and reporters from around the country as well as advocates and expert professors giving an inside view of these increasingly turbulent times.
