This class will introduce microphones, their use in the studio, and also discuss signal routing. Students will learn the difference between condenser and dynamic microphones, learn to apply phantom power, and learn essential practices for microphone use and care. Students will also learn about signal routing in the studio, including how to send cues and use the talk-back system. This class helps prepare students for the Audio Assessment covering these topics.
For generations, information and opinions about food were found in the food sections of newspapers in communities large and small. Until the early 1970s, these sections were housed in the women's pages of newspapers—where women could hold an authoritative voice. The food editors—often a mix of trained journalist and home economist—reported on everything from nutrition news to features on the new chef in town. The sections reflected the trends of the time and the cooks of the community. Kimberly Voss, author of The Food Section: Newspaper Women and the Culinary Community will talk about these women. A book sale and signing will follow the event. #writers
