Welcome to JOUR 4470 in fall 2008

I'll be looking forward to our conversations this semester. Please be ready to participate in our discussions about Anthony Appiah's Cosmopolitanism, the first book we'll read together. Be sure to check the blog each week for helpful links and assignments.

And stay tuned for election discussions, especially the new media strategies of both major presidential candidates and the ethics involved in those strategies.
