The Weave

Stitching the world together, one under-reported story at a time

The Weave is an independent media project grounded in the work of the Global Studies Department. It is staffed by SLU students, alumni, faculty and staff as well as other individuals who share its commitment to exploring underreported stories.  In addition to an ever-growing set of blogs that investigate such stories, the Weave features a "Big Questions" video archive of short interviews with scholars, journalists, activists, and artists. 

The Weave also sponsors an annual .5-credit internship course in which students work collaboratively on projects designed to move the Weave forward.  In the process, they learn valuable skills related to organizational development, fundraising, public relations, video production, public speaking, social media, and other areas that are central to success in a variety of 21st-century career paths. 

As part of their work as independent journalists, Weave staffers also contribute to the leadership of SLU's new Global Dialogue Center, organize campus and community events, provide coverage of stories taking place around the world while engaging in independent research and off-campus study, and attend major gatherings such as the annual National Conference on Media Reform.
