Three NPR journalists will start academic fellowships starting this fall, with Dina Temple-Raston and Alison MacAdam joining the Nieman program at Harvard, and Louisa Lim attending the University of Michigan as a Knight-Wallace fellow.
Temple-Raston, who covers counterterrorism for the network, will study the use of big data in intelligence gathering. MacAdam, a senior All Things Considered editor, will study the business of the art world.
In Michigan, Lim will study the sustainability of China’s current political structures. She currently reports from Beijing.
An NPR release notes that reporters Chris Arnold and Eric Westervelt recently finished fellowships, studying housing and new media, respectively.
