We’re off to a great start in 2018 where we have a new team of media interns from our UTS Masters of Advanced Journalism program going to India to report from there, funded by the Australia-India Council (AIC) part of DFAT. Join me and our students as they file news stories on the ground with real deadlines in order to emulate the ‘foreign correspondent’ experience, preparing them for future journalistic experiences within an international context and the tools to practise journalism within another culture.
Devleena Ghosh, an academic at UTS, is a scholar of gender, religious and environmental studies in the South Asian region. She has published widely on shared religious practices in Bangalore and coal mining and climate change in India. Her article “Burma-Bengal crossings: intercolonial relations in pre-indepence India” won the Wang Gung Wu prize for best article in the Asian Studies Review in 2016.
I love to tell a good story. I completed my Bachelor of Journalism and Media Communication in 2015, six months after my first Foreign Correspondent study tour. I have been working with FCST ever since, visiting Jordan three times. I have been working in the travel industry and writing travel pieces for The Australian Times and Travel Guides. In 2017 year I commenced a Masters Degree in Journalism at The University of Melbourne and have applied at UTS to complete the course.
