Message from Dean Susan King to UNC Hussman students

August 17, 2020, 5:31 PM
Dear UNC Hussman Students,
Late this afternoon, the Chancellor and Provost engaged with the deans as we discussed the COVID-19 positivity rate rise on campus. I know that the upheaval of this summer and fall semester have already caused stress for all in our community. Many of us will have to rearrange lives once again as we have done throughout this pandemic. But the leadership, faculty and staff of UNC Hussman are here for you as we navigate this change.

Recoding the Boys’ Club: The experiences and future of women in political technology

July 28, 2020, 10:14 AM
What is the workplace like for women at the intersection of politics and technology? A collaborative team of seven co-authors from UNC Hussman School of Journalism and Media wielded rigorous social science standards in the quest to find out. Practitioners in the field and anyone interested in an inclusive workplace environment — or familiar with mansplaining, whisper networks, and layering, for that matter — will find their resulting book, “Recoding the Boys’ Club: The Experiences & Future of Women in Political Technology,” an eye-opening read. Alumna Jenni Ciesielski ’19, Haley Fernandez ’18, Kate Frauenfelder ’18, Brinley Lowe ’19 and Gabrielle Micchia ’19; Ph.D. candidate and Roy H. Park Fellow Kirsten Adams; and Associate Professor Daniel Kreiss authored the peer-reviewed book, a July Oxford University Press release. Royalties are being donated back to UNC Hussman.
