We are a band of journalists traveling abroad as an international press corps to cover what’s happening in Greece. The project, titled “Covering Crisis, Culture and Community in Greece,” is part of Northeastern University’s Dialogue of Civilizations study abroad program. For five weeks, we’ll be reporting from Thessaloniki and Athens on the Syrian refugee crisis, immigration, the economy, arts, politics, sports, social justice, the environment and whatever else students stumble upon. We have 18 reporters with us, two professors and one teaching assistant. On these pages will be the fruits of their hard work. Find articles, photos, slideshows, video reports. Also, linked at the top, are the team’s personal blogs. These will capture the sights and sounds of the trip, as well as the students’ triumphs and defeats. Their reflections on what’s happening to them are just as important as the journalistic work they’re engaged in, so please, take a look.
