Ethical Dilemmas in Journalism and Storytelling: The Influence of Memory, Trauma and Time
Research, writing and reporting often include ethical dilemmas related to telling stories. What happens when source materials such as documents, diaries, photographs or oral histories conflict? How do trauma and time affect memories, interviewing techniques and the stories we tell?
Rachael Cerrotti, author of "We Share the Same Sky: A Memoir of Memory & Migration," will share her experiences creating a memoir of her Jewish grandmother's experiences in Europe during the Holocaust, relying on multiple, diverse sources that did not always follow the "facts."
Cerrotti has published in major news outlets such as The Washington Post, The Boston Globe and NPR; created an award-winning podcast; and serves as the inaugural Storyteller in Residence for the USC Shoah Foundation.
