A team of 10 UBC journalism students investigating the global effects of shrimp farming has partnered with The Globe and Mail to produce a web video project for the paper’s food series, which launched Nov. 20.
The students, as part of the International Reporting program led by associate professor Peter Klein, addressed a key component of the Globe series, investigating the impact of industrial shrimp production on the environment and the consumer.
The student team included: Alexis Stoymenoff, Brandi Cowen, Darren Fleet, Faiza Khan, Karen Moxley, Kate Allen, Kerry Blackadar, Magally Zelaya, Rebecca TeBrake, and Sarah Berman. Sarah Stenabaugh and Erin Empey assisted in production of the series in Canada. Adjunct professor Trisha Sorrels Doyle and instructor Dan McKinney helped to lead production of the piece.
This is the second project of UBC’s International Reporting program. The first documentary, “Ghana: Digital Dumping Ground,” was produced in partnership with PBS Frontline/World and won an Emmy Award in September for magazine investigative reporting.
