Ruxandra Joins Faculty at the University of Arizona School of Journalism by Bear Guerra

Ruxandra Guidi, an assistant professor of practice who grew up in Venezuela, has been a freelance reporter, editor and teacher for two decades.

She specializes in audio reporting and podcasting and has contributed to High Country News, BBC’s The World, NPR’s Latino USA, The Guardian and the Kitchen Sisters. With her husband she created the Fonografia Collective website, focusing on “empathetic and culturally sensitive documentary storytelling about everyday people around the world.”
 
Guidi succeeds retired Professor Terry Wimmer as the instructor and editor for Arizona Sonora News, the school’s capstone media course. She’s excited about helping students “dream up” unique approaches to stories while learning how to report on the community and the border.
 
“And I'm really excited about coming up with projects that we can do together as a class,” such as podcasting or a long-form magazine with a theme, “encouraging students to pursue their own approach to storytelling,” Guidi said.

"The Meaning of Refuge" at Fishtrap by Bear Guerra

Ruxandra is a contributing editor with High Country News, the almost-50-year-old national magazine about the West. Coming up later this month, she’ll be participating in “The Meaning of Refuge” at Winter Fishtrap in Josephy, OR, moderated by editor-in-chief, Brian Calvert:

“Is refuge for all living things something of a natural right? There are many interpretations of what "refuge" means in the West, from wildlife and plant refuge in climate change, the Malheur standoff and other threats to public lands. Join the High Country News Editorial staff for an in-depth exploration of "Refuge" in regards to the environment, our communities, and inward towards our own personal refuge.”

New Feature: A California Mayor Wants His Beach Town to Retreat From the Shore by Bear Guerra

“At the start of each year, Southern California gets a glimpse into a future of rising seas, through an annual event called the king tide. On that day, the sun, moon, and Earth align to create a heavy gravitational pull, leading to the highest tides of the year. If “king tide” sounds ominous, that’s because it is, particularly for a city like Imperial Beach, a small coastal town near the Mexican border surrounded by water on three sides: San Diego Bay to the north, the Pacific Ocean to the west, and the Tijuana River Delta to the south.”
