In this episode, we take a global look at influences of gender and identity in newswork. With a focus on investigative journalism in Latin America, Vanessa de Macedo Higgins Joyce at Texas State University, in the U.S., discusses the opportunities and challenges for women entering that news genre. In Colombia, Julián D. Cortés-Sánchez at Universidad del Rosario who is also affiliated with Fudan University, in China, the Universidad de Los Andes, in Colombia, and Woxsen University, in India, talks through a content analysis of business journalism that, in part, discusses the role and representations of women in financial news. And, recorded separately, Tyra L. Jackson at Texas A&M, in the U.S., shares her autoethnography about working as a Black female reporter in a white newsroom.
