One of my first tasks as a lecturer at Lehman College was to create an online version of the print Bronx Journal. I work with my colleagues, Elaine Rivera and Miguel Perez, to produce the online publication, which showcases the work of Lehman College students. It is an online-only production created in the Bronx about the Bronx.
Site visitors can learn about current issues affecting Bronx residents, like the abuse of the elderly or demographic shifts, they can follow local events on the site blog and they can hear a diverse points of view in the opinion pages. The site features text, multimedia and broadcast stories from The Bronx Journal television program. The Bronx Journal television producers update clips weekly, featuring local movers and shakers. In addition to being multimedia, the site is multilingual, with stories in Spanish, French, Italian, Russian, Japanese and Chinese.
