Kay Carter – Speaking to Forum of Christian Leaders
Engaging with media can be challenging for any academic, but Christian scholars seeking to be salt and light to media audiences face an additional layer of complexity. This session provides a framework for finding faith-friendly messages from within our disciplines and helps pitch them in a media-savvy way. We’ll also look at building constructive relationships with media practitioners and handling difficult interview questions.
