Alert! Do you teach a high school or college multimedia class? I’m looking to partner with someone on a transmedia project for my Nina Kosterina biography. Wouldn’t it be great to bring the Stalin period of Russian history to life for teens through an interactive platform? And give students some practical experience with such a multimedia project? Send me a message if you’re interested in discussing this idea!

When developing my biography on Elijah Lovejoy, I learned about Colby College’s annual Lovejoy award for courageous journalism. This year's awardee is New York Times investigative reporter James Risen, who praised Lovejoy as a “disruptive force” ahead of his time as an abolitionist editor.
