Work has meant different things to people over the years, and its meaning continues to change today, Shell explained. But there’s no doubt that, as a way to provide both necessities and personal fulfillment, it is essential.
When Garfinkel, a veteran journalist with a PhD in computer science, was offered the chance to write "The Computer Book," he knew right away that he wanted to take on the project. “Books are more work than you think, but they stay on the library shelves after you die,” he said to the KSJ fellows in April.
The fellows, selected from more than 120 applicants, are an award-winning and diverse group. They include accomplished reporters from the Des Moines Register and Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, veteran editors of international outlets like the BBC and New Scientist, and a freelance journalist who was recently named the European Science Writer of the Year.
“My fellowship looks at how our bodies yield to power but also resist the demands of our time, language, and culture,” said De Bode. “My journalism explores how we build community, and improve the worlds we live in.”
