On the Issues: Pulitzer Prize-winning author and journalist Tina Rosenberg


What should be the role of journalists today? Is it simply enough to report on problems, without reporting on how to fix them? Tina Rosenberg coauthors the “Fixes” column in the New York Times online “Opinionator” section, exploring creative solutions to social problems. Rosenberg is also co-founder of the Solutions Journalism Network and plays a key role in FixesU, a Marquette-New York Times partnership creating an online curriculum around solutions-based journalism. Rosenberg’s work has appeared in numerous national publications, and she frequently writes for The New York Times Magazine. She is the author of three books. In 1995, she won a Pulitzer Prize for General Non-Fiction for The Haunted Land: Facing Europe’s Ghosts After Communism. Her most recent book is Join the Club: How Peer Pressure Can Transform the World. Rosenberg is visiting the Law School as part of the American Bar Association’s Mediation Week.
