David Hoffman 

When: Mon., Dec. 9, 5 p.m. 2013
While the rise of technology and social media has given ordinary people the ability to shape the news, the integrity of journalism in the 21st century remains in question. However, David Hoffman, a Pulitzer Prize-winning author, sees great potential in the future of journalism. As the founder of Internews, a nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting independent and local media throughout the world, Hoffman has witnessed the ways in which new media has helped shape watershed moments in modern history. In his new book, Citizens Rising: Independent Journalism and the Spread of Democracy, he explores the emergence of new media and how it empowers ordinary citizens to bring about social change. Join Hoffman at UC Berkeley’s Graduate School of Journalism (121 North Gate Hall, Berkeley) as he gives an in-depth look at the past, present, and future of independent journalism.
