Did you work as a journalism intern in Canada or the United States between 2013 and 2017? Researcher Errol Salamon would like to hear about your experiences for a textbook on labour issues facing media workers in North America.
Salamon is the work and labour editor of J-Source, and a visiting research scholar at the University of Pennsylvania. He’s creating the textbook and accompanying curriculum materials for use in college and university journalism, communications, media studies, cultural studies, sociology, and labour studies classes in Canada and the United States.
If you’re interested in participating in his research, your identity will be kept confidential. Your responses will become part of a book-length account of the working conditions and labour issues facing North American media workers, including interns, freelancers, and digital media workers.
Salamon is interested in hearing about what was beneficial and what could’ve been improved about your journalism internships. Willing subjects are asked to complete this short introductory questionnaire. Once you’ve completed the survey you’ll be contacted to set up a time for a short phone interview.
This project is supported by CWA Canada, the Canadian Media Guild’s parent union. It aims to raise awareness about media workers’ rights and determine best practices for quality journalism in a digital age.
