I'm surprised that people haven't talked about the political leanings and "vibe" of different schools and media establishments. I want to stay in the Bay Area, and Berkeley and Stanford seem to be the only two MJourn programs here. Berkeley has a strong social justice vibe. Over the years, I've learned that progressive schools and publications do not want to hear what I say, despite the fact that I'm a marginalized minority as well. My impressions of Stanford is that they have more of Silicon Valley's social enterprise culture. Still liberal, but less activist than Berkeley's. Would Stanford be more receptive to me? Is Stanford more "stuck up" in a different way than Berkeley? Which school would be more receptive to someone whose stories are new and different from what's already broadcast in the media? Are these two schools feeder schools for the major liberal news media like NYT, Al Jazeera, NPR, etc? Thanks in advance for your help.
Hi everyone, As a progressive Christian I'm interested in finding some fiction somewhere between C.S. Lewis and Jose Saramago. I tend to prefer European literature over American (especially British) but, as an example, take Flannery O'Connor who was an ardent Catholic but a staunch advocate of racial equality. Her stories "Temple of the Holy Ghost" and "The Misplaced Person" also question our society's treatment of sexual and religious minorities via Christian symbolism. Anyone have any recommendations?
