Homelessness is one of Oxford’s defining issues. This is no surprise to a city where houses cost more than 10 times the local income, a city crowned the UK’s least affordable place to live.
There are many groups with a stake on this issue, and many perspectives for our Journalism class to investigate; local homeowners, the police, the local council, Oxford colleges, and the homeless themselves!
To fully explore this issue, the Journalism students are conducting interviews, creating multi-media content, writing short-form and long-form pieces. They are treating this with as much nerve and nuance as the professionals.
