Media and Politics in the Age of Globalization
On October 30, 2008, Solutions Across Borders hosted its first event of the semester, titled "Media and Politics in the Age of Globalization," targeted at the entire Baruch student body and faculty. The club brought to Baruch a well qualified panel, composed of three experts from the world of mass media - Valerie Block, managing edior of Crain's New York; Zyphus Lebrun from CUNY TV; and Craig Renaud, a prominent documentary filmmaker. The discussion was centered around the then upcoming election, an event that had dominated almost all mass media outlets for the last couple of months. Within the context of the election, issues of race, gender, young voters, and the economy were raised and addressed by the panel.
