Gabriel Dance to Speak on Friday, 3/20/2015

In the next digital humanities workshop we will hear from Gabriel Dance, a journalist and editor working at the cutting edge of news. Based in New York City, Gabriel helped launch the Guardian US, building a graphics team that garnered awards and recognition for interactive storytelling. He was part of a group of journalists who won the 2014 Pulitzer Prize for Public Service for coverage of widespread secret surveillance by the National Security Agency. His work has also won two Emmy awards for New Approaches to News and Documentary, an Alfred L. DuPont award, a World Press Photo award, and several others. Gabriel is currently a managing editor at The Marshall Project, a non-profit investigative journalism startup focusing on crime and punishment in the United States.
