The Columbia Journalism Review featured the research of associate professor Rodney Benson in its 2010 May/June issue. The report authored by Michael Schudson and Julia Sonnevend titled "French Connections: What do different press styles have to do with distinct political cultures?" highlights Benson's comparative content analysis of French and U.S. immigration news coverage. The case study was published in the January issue of the International Journal of Press/Politics.
Benson is Director of Graduate Studies in the NYU Steinhardt Department of Media, Culture, and Communication and an affiliated faculty member in the NYU Department of Sociology in the College of Arts and Sciences. His book, Framing Immigration: How the French and American Media Shape Public Debate, is forthcoming from Cambridge University Press.
