The Vice Rectorate for International Relations at the Miguel Hernández University of Elche is going to screen the documentary, Sands of Silence, by journalist Chelo Álvarez-Stehle.

Miguel Carvajal during his visit to the United States.

Associate Professor of Journalism and Associate Dean in Journalism Projection at the UMH, Miguel Carvajal, visited prestigious universities in New York last week. During his stay there, he presented the Mediterranean Cultural Studies Study Abroad UMH program to strengthen the UMH presence in the USA. He also met with representatives from American institutions to establish exchange agreements for the UMH undergraduate programs of Journalism and Audiovisual Communication in addition to the Master’s in Innovation in Journalism.

Within the framework of the UMH DESTINO Program for Faculty & Research Personnel, professor Carvajal entered into an exchange agreement with Pace University in order to expand the curricular offer for UMH students. The journalism and film programs at that US university are characterized by a practical work methodology that include cutting-edge courses on media innovation, drone journalism, documentary production, and journalism in social networks. Among the forms of collaboration, the agreement being formulated is contemplating semester-long exchanges, a specific training program for American students in Elche, and collaboration between the faculty at both centers.

During his stay in New York, professor Carvajal had the opportunity to analyze the Entrepreneurial Journalism program at the City University of New York, a pioneer in the field, which is coordinated by Director of Education for the Tow-Knight Center for Entrepreneurial Journalism at the CUNY Graduate School of Journalism, Jeremy Caplan. Furthermore, Dr. Carvajal met with Bozena I. Mierzejewska, Assistant Professor in Communications and Media Management at Fordham University.

As for the UMH Master’s in Innovation in Journalism, Miguel Carvajal, who is also the program’s coordinator, set up the first global network of university faculty of entrepreneurship and innovation in journalism. Among its members are professors from CUNY, Pace University, and Fordham University, all located in New York City. Moreover, more than twenty academics from Spanish and European universities also comprise part of this work group.
