IAS faculty member Kristin Gustafson co-moderated a teaching panel, "Teaching with Archives of the Alternative Press of the 1960s–1980s," at the Association for Education in Journalism and Mass Communication in August with Susan Keith. The panel brought together efforts of the association's History Division and Newspaper and Online News Division. Gustafson and Keith said they organized the panel because too often the narratives of journalism and media history are the stories of people who had power in society and took what were considered to be relatively mainstream positions. The panelists shared best practices, teaching strategies, and use of archives that go beyond dominant media. In so doing, it provided "a chance to tell a richer story about people and perspectives," they said. Gustafson also published a column previewing the panel and the panelists in the Summer 2017 issue of Clio.  The column features best practices that encourage pedagogies of diversity, collaboration, community, and justice.
