Joan of Arc was NOT Noah’s Wife: The Need for Religious Literacy Among U.S. Reporters

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Religious illiteracy in the U.S. has reached a crisis point. The use and misuse of faith often dominates the news at even a local level, but journalism students have never been so unprepared to ask good questions. As a result, accurate reporting is often problematic especially for religious minorities. This panel addresses the growing need for a fundamental level of religious literacy as a requirement for graduation.
Moderator: Ian Case Punnett, Arizona State University

Mariam F. Alkazemi, University of Florida
Jeffery A. Smith, University of Wisconsin–Milwaukee
