Co-sign above! The religion beat is HARD and we are lucky to have religion reporters. I wish more outlets would hire them.

Reporters and academics each bring something to the table. The closer we collaborate the better

as we discussed all week, it’s incredibly challenging to write smart, accessible pieces on complex human commitments and practices (especially in a matter of hours!) scholars have a lot to learn from journalists, and a lot to gain by working with them.

very this. a nonstop news cycle doesn’t afford journalists time for exhaustive research. reporting’s a different skill set than scholarship. we need both, so let’s get better at working together!

This is one thing I wish I'd mentioned . Reporters are often in the "Now" -- we see what's right in front of us and often its new to us. This is where we need the help of scholars-- to give some context to what we are seeing right before our eyes.

Hey : I took your advice to the cohort this week to heart and instead of only yelling I emailed the reporter who wrote the original piece, pointing out some errors and offering to chat if she continues to report on this topic.

our first cohort closed down a week of intense conversations by planning their publi scholarship activities for the next week/month/year. here, shows us how it’s done.
