The field of journalism faces a reckoning as it struggles to remain relevant to a global citizenry of increasing diversity and social awakening. "How do journalists know what they know? Who gets to decide what good journalism is and when it’s done right?" These are some of the questions discussed in "Reckoning: Journalism's Limits and Possibilities." The authors, Candis Callison and Mary Lynn Young, along with Donovan Quintero, a reporter with the Navajo Times, on Sep 3 had an in-depth discussion of how journalists and educators can act to change the culture of journalism and journalism education to embrace a more situated and systemic journalism.
