The Knight-Risser Prize
for Western Environmental Journalism

The Knight-Risser Prize Symposium

The annual Knight-Risser Symposium seeks to forge active collaborative links between environmental research, education, journalism, and policy-making to enrich and support environmental journalism and make environmental research, scholarship and teaching relevant to the real world.

2010 Symposium

“The Crisis in Environmental Journalism”
Wednesday, November 17, 2010, 4-6PM
Paul Brest Hall East, Stanford University

How can environmental watchdog journalism survive the crisis in the news industry? Amid buyouts and consolidation in daily newspapers, who will finance the kind of work typified by Knight-Risser Prize winners like Lewis Kamb, whose Seattle Post-Intelligencer ceased print publication in 2009, or the now-defunct Rocky Mountain News, winners of the 2005 Risser Prize?

Further details to come soon. Follow @KnightRisser on Twitter to stay up to date.
