Henry Jenkins joins Peabody Awards Committee
Henry Jenkins, USC Provost's Professor, media critic and author of books like Covergence Culture, has been selected to join the board of the Peabody Awards. The Peabody Award is given to radio, television and internet journalists who perform "distinguished and meritorious public service" through their work.
Jenkins says that he's excited about the appointment, adding that "I am hopeful that my involvement can help them also respond to a shifting media environment where real accomplishments are emerging at the intersections between media that other awards committees have had a difficulty understanding and appreciating."
