and David Goodman at Tufts.  Their work as journalists who go the extra 
mile to uncover difficult stories and their willingness to take a stand 
clearly demonstrates a powerful way that journalism can be a form of 
activism.  We are incredibly excited to have them inaugurate Inside the 
Activist's Study," said Julie Dobrow, Director of the Communications and 
Media Studies program.
