It’s been several years in the making.
The first hint of the School’s new digital publication came during the May 25, 2015 meeting of journalism faculty members. That’s when they agreed to move toward integrating two of the program’s long-standing publications: Centretown News and Capital News Online.
It was a massive undertaking involving a revamped curriculum and a bright new vision of what that integration might look like.
The resulting Capital Current publication was imagined as a digital hub, drawing content from the best work produced by journalism students in all senior reporting courses.
More than just a vehicle for student work, though, Capital Current was built for a larger journalistic mission. And at the December gathering to celebrate their students’ achievements, that mission was underscored by co-publishers and workshop instructors Aneurin Bosley and Christina Spencer.
