Spring Luncheon: Ruth Moon, Ph.D.: “Stories from the Field: Understanding Journalism Work in Rwanda”

Wednesday, May 15, 11:45 a.m.
Seattle Yacht Club, 1807 E. Hamlin Street, Seattle

Ruth Moon has a Ph.D. in communications from the University of Washington. She studies journalists and the ways they incorporate competing pressures and values into their work, especially in authoritarian contexts where technological infrastructure is weak. Her award-winning research has been supported by grants from the University of Washington, the Boren Fellowship, and the Institute for Humane Studies. Her dissertation, which she completed in 2018, examines journalism in Rwanda. As a journalist, Moon has worked for Christianity Today, the Rapid City Journal, the Colorado Springs Gazette, and other news outlets, and she currently edits Seattle Pacific University’s magazine, Response. Moon will discuss her research in Rwanda and other East African countries, focusing on the ways Rwandan journalism has been shaped by social, political, and professional influences to take its current shape.

The luncheon will take place on Wednesday, May 15, at the Seattle Yacht Club. Free parking is available in the adjacent parking lot. The luncheon starts at 11:45 a.m.; doors open at 11:30 a.m. The cost is $40 per person and guests are welcome.
