Broadcast journalism, scholarly studies, university-level teaching – Christine Crowther’s combination of professional skills and academic experience has resulted in a one-year term appointment with the Journalism program as of July 1, 2019. The newly-appointed Instructor II will teach a variety of broadcast workshops and journalism seminars at the undergraduate and graduate levels over the upcoming fall and winter terms.

Crowther first taught within the program as a contract instructor three years ago, developing and launching an introductory undergraduate course about journalism for non-journalism students. She also designed and taught an undergraduate course about media and international development and took on the intensive six-week graduate-level video workshop. Her new teaching duties will include third-year undergraduate audio and video workshops as well as the senior mini-doc workshop, 25th Hour.

Prior to teaching at Carleton, Crowther was a term lecturer with Concordia University’s Journalism department for some half-dozen years. She worked as a professional broadcast journalist for 15 years both in Canada and overseas.

She completed a Bachelor of Arts with a major in Political Science as well as a Bachelor of Journalism at the University of Regina, and a MSc Media and Communications at the London School of Economics. She is currently completing a PhD in Communication Studies at McGill University.
