October 9, 2013

Event Information:

Date: Wednesday, Oct. 16
Time: 12:15 p.m.
Place: Marquette Law School, Eckstein Hall

Tina Rosenberg, a Pulitzer Prize winner and co-author of the New York Times’ “Fixes” blog, will be the featured guest in an upcoming “On the Issues with Mike Gousha,” Wednesday, Oct. 16, from 12:15 to 1:15 p.m. in Eckstein Hall, 1215 W. Michigan St.

What should be the role of journalists today? Is it simply enough to report on problems, without reporting on how to fix them? Join us for a discussion with Rosenberg, who uses her online columns to explore creative solutions to social problems.

Rosenberg is a co-founder of the Solutions Journalism Network. She and “Fixes” co-author David Bornstein play a key role in FixesU, a partnership with Marquette to create an online curriculum around solutions-based journalism.

Her work has appeared in a variety of national publications and she is the author of several books. She won a Pulitzer Prize for General Non-Fiction for The Haunted Land: Facing Europe’s Ghosts After Communism. Her most recent book is Join the Club: How Peer Pressure Can Transform the World. Rosenberg is visiting the Law School as part of the American Bar Association’s Mediation Week.

Gousha, distinguished fellow in law and public policy and an award-winning journalist, continues his “On the Issues” series of provocative and insightful interviews with local and national public officials, journalists and other newsmakers throughout the year. The fall 2013 schedule is also available.

Seating is limited; registration is available online. For those who can’t attend in person, all “On the Issues” events are streamed live at the following website, which also contains a catalog of past guests.
