Rolling Blackouts takes you behind the scenes with journalists from the Seattle Globalist as they report from Turkey, Northern Iraq and Syria. Here, you’ll find links to the work by Seattle Globalist journalists referenced in the book as they come up in each chapter as well as a list of stories produced during the reporting trip.
Chapter 1: Starting Out
Page 13 panel 4: A good example of the Seattle Globalist's early Seattle area reporting (and the one pictured here) is the radio series Life on the Duwamish which was produced for KUOW, Seattle's NPR affiliate.
Page 13 panel 5: Water Wars: Ethiopia and Kenya was a series of articles, radio pieces, and photo/video journalism sponsored by a grant from the Pulitzer Center for Crisis Reporting. The stories produced for this project were published on Frontline, NPR, the San Francisco Chronicle and other media outlets.
Hitting the Road: A blog post by Sarah Stuteville written at the start of the 2010 reporting trip with an accompanying short video produced by Chantal Anderson who interviewed Seattle area youth on how the Iraq War has impacted them.
All Aboard the Trans-Asia Express: I was planning on posting comics throughout the reporting trip but this is the only one which I had time to do. It eventually became the opening of Rolling Blackouts.
Chapter 2: The Trans-Asia Express
Chapter 3: Van, Turkey
Among the Faithful: A blog post by Sarah Stuteville on faith, featuring Iranian refugees Amin and Mina (whose names were changed for the book but not for the earlier article about them) and observations from Eid al-Adha practices.
Chapter 4: Sulaymaniyah, Iraq
Page 119 panel 8: The Seattle Globalist/Common Language Project reports often on immigration and detention, but a good example is the multimedia reporting project Between Worlds/Behind Bars produced for KUOW.
