Dr. Everette Dennis, dean and CEO of Northwestern University in Qatar*, sat down with the host of WFUV’s “Fordham Conversations,” Robin Shannon, to discuss the school’s journalism and communications program, including the type of reporting students are doing in a part of the world not traditionally known for freedom of expression.
Dr. Dennis, former chair of the Communication and Media Management Department at Fordham University’s Graduate School of Business, explored a number of issues relating to Middle East residents’ attitudes about the role of news outlets and what type of content should be allowed, as well as prohibited. He also revealed what Americans might find surprising about denizens of the region, including their awareness and, indeed, love for programming produced in the United States.
