The Project

The students worked under the direction of Cronkite faculty members Rick Rodriguez and Alfredo Corchado. Rodriguez, former executive editor of the Sacramento (California) Bee, is the Carnegie Professor of Journalism at the Cronkite School, where he teaches a seminar on Latino issues and a depth reporting class. Corchado, longtime Mexico City bureau chief for The Dallas Morning News, helps lead the Borderlands bureau for Cronkite News.

Cronkite technologist Nic Lindh designed and built the website, while Christopher West, Anna Copper, Kelsey DeGideo, Elizabeth Hansen, Justin Price and Rian Bosse served as digital producers.

“Hungary: Europe’s Borderland” was made possible by a grant from the Howard G. Buffett Foundation, the Illinois-based nonprofit organization founded by the international photojournalist, author and philanthropist.
