Beyond War Stories: Clifford G. Christians' Influence on the Teaching of Media Ethics, 1976-1984.
Peck, Lee Anne
Clifford Glenn Christians' work in the area of media ethics education from 1976 through 1984 has influenced the way media ethics is taught to many college students today. This time period includes, among his other accomplishments, Christians' work on an extensive survey of how media ethics was taught in the late 1970s, his work on the Hastings Center monograph "Teaching Ethics in Journalism Education," and his creation in 1983 of the book "Media Ethics: Cases and Moral Reasoning," a textbook that is still used today. In 1984, important events in the teaching of media ethics occurred, events in which Christians was instrumental in one way or another. The effects of these events, which included the creation of a teaching workshop for educators and a journal for mass media ethics, are still visible today. (Contains 124 notes. Details on Christians' degrees and professional experience are attached.) (Author/RS)
