Journalists will be covering food and food issues as never before, and to help reporters, editors and producers make sense of these issues, MIT's Knight Science Journalism Fellowships is offering a four-day course on some of the most important food-related issues. This will be an intensive course -- all day, every day -- devoted primarily to discussions and lectures. Just 12 journalists will be admitted through a competition, to join the 11 Knight Fellows already in residence at MIT.
The Boot Camp will teach the basics of the issues and address the underlying science and the overlying social, economic and political factors. And it will explore connections among the different issues.
