Peace journalism in Kashmir 
I will be traveling to the Kashmir region of India in about 2 weeks for a major peace journalism project that will involve seminars and lectures for university students, curriculum planning sessions, and a workshop for professional journalists. Updates will be posted, of course, on this blog.

New peace journalism text in the works
 I am thrilled to announce that I am under contract with Routledge Publishing/Taylor and Francis Books to produce a new peace journalism textbook for university students. I've been working for a few weeks on chapter outlines and research, and am already pushing towards next spring's copy deadline. Details are below. Stay tuned to this space for updates.
Peace Journalism: Principles and Practice
by Steven Youngblood
Director, Center for Global Peace Journalism
Park University
Routledge Publishing/Taylor and Francis Books
Peace Journalism: Principles and Practice will be devoted exclusively to peace journalism and its many nuances. It features chapters on the peace journalism approach and the need for such an approach, about inflammatory journalism, and on the academic debates about peace journalism. Peace Journalism: Principles and Practice also discusses peace journalism as an antidote to traditional media narratives on crime, race, refugees, and Islam. The text closes with chapters on peace journalism as a tool for reconciliation and development, and on the future of peace journalism.
Peace Journalism: Principles and Practice will be published in fall, 2016.​
