Students enrolled in Long Form Journalism will analyse the work of a contemporary or historical practitioner of long-form journalism and they will also produce their own piece of long-form journalism (critical or review essay, observational feature story, themed-blog posts, immersion story, gonzo reportage, historical journalism, digital storytelling or audio slide show to name a few possible styles and formats) on a research topic of their choice. All students will be expected to write for publication. The subject will to expose students to the dazzling range of long form journalism produced from the early twentieth century until the present. Students will learn to write critically about selected work from the journalism canon, to think about how such work is researched and written and why and then use this knowledge to produce their own piece of journalism. The aim is to give students research training for scholarly or creative honours or masters projects.
