UCIS and the Department of English are offering a one-credit masterclass led by former NPR Morning Edition co-host, David Greene, and author and frequent contributor to the New Yorker, Shannon Reed, on the Art of the Interview. Focusing on stories of displacement (refugees, migrants, threatened scholars from around the world), the course will meet in person four times during the semester. Students will work on their individual projects between class meetings and through the end of the semester.

This class may count toward your certificate in Global Studies, Latin American Studies, Russian, European, and Eurasian Studies, African Studies, European Studies, the Global Distinction, and more.

Course sessions: Friday September 29 (2-5), Saturday September 30 (10-4), Friday October 27 (2-5), Saturday October 28 (10-4).
