The Oak Student Committee welcomes Lauren Duca as the keynote speaker for their spring programming series on issues of access, “Breaking Down Barriers.” Duca, contributing editor at Teen Vogue, will speak about the importance of making the news accessible to every audience, including groups like teenage women. Duca will share her insights on the state of journalism in terms of accountability, the necessity of being informed, and the role of young people in politics, as well as her experience as a woman in journalism. She will also contextualize Teen Vogue’s shift to include more politics and discuss her new column, “Thigh-High Politics,” and the importance of making the news relevant to young readers. Cosponsored by the Center for the Arts and Humanities, the English Department, and the Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies Program.
