Abstract:This article documents student participation in journalism research as a means of both teaching about civic issues and promoting more comprehensive coverage of humanitarian crises. Students at the University of Colorado, Boulder, participated in an inductive study of how the Darfur crisis (Sudan) was covered from 2003-2005 by ten different news organizations in seven different countries. Though student papers were revised and expanded before publication in the author's book 'The geopolitics of representation in foreign news: explaining Darfur' (2010), the project enabled hands-on learning about research design, the geopolitical contexts in which news about Darfur was created, and the construction of foreign news in general.
