The New York Times graphics department is at the forefront of a new genre — spatial investigations — which combine traditional digging, meticulous spatial reporting and highly technical 3D innovation. In this fifth master class organized within the scope of IPI’s Turkey Digital News Accelerator, we host three members of this team — Anjali Singhvi, Mika Gröndahl and Haeyoun Park — to discuss how they pushed the boundaries of investigative reporting and innovative storytelling techniques with visual stories on the 2023 Turkey earthquakes.

Hosted by Istanbul-based journalist Gülsin Harman.

English to Turkish translation will be provided.

Facilitator and host: Gülsin Harman, IPI Turkey, Journalist

Gülsin Harman is an Istanbul-based journalist who frequently contributes to the New York Times and BBC Monitoring. After the Nieman Fellowship at Harvard University in 2020, she received a grant from the European Journalism Center to develop a newsletter. She was selected to join the Product Immersion Program at the Craig Newmark Graduate School of Journalism and invited to the News Product Alliance Product Expansion Program.

As a researcher, she looked into the online harassment of journalists in Turkey for the International Press Institute in 2016.
