Concordia, Montreal Gazette seek to better inform Montrealers through experimental collaboration

October 19, 2017

Concordia University has partnered with the Montreal Gazette in a collaboration that aims to better inform Montrealers about all aspects of the road work taking place throughout the city. Titled #MTLroadwork, the project gives Montrealers access to both the Gazette’s journalistic work on the topic and academic journalism conducted by Concordia’s experts. The university’s material reportedly comes from professors who works in areas that touch on roadwork, such as urban planning and engineering. The first published work to come from the collaboration is a Gazette piece by Andy Riga and two pieces by Concordia professors Mazdak Nik-Bakht and Pierre Gauthier. Montreal Gazette (#MTLroadwork) | Concordia (Professors’ work) | Montreal Gazette (Riga Article)
