Founded in 2002, the Knight Center for Journalism at the University of Texas at Austin was created as a professional training and outreach program for journalists throughout the Americas. During its first year of existence, the Center focused its work on Brazil and Mexico and on establishing a series of seminars and workshops to train journalists from these countries. Other work involves working toward the establishment of an annual forum that will assist various organizations dedicated to journalism training in Latin America. From the website, visitors can learn more about the Center's mission, read about recent stories about journalism in the Americas, and subscribe to a weekly e-newsletter. One particularly valuable resource on the site is the Journalism Studies Directory, which serves as a guide to Spanish and Portuguese language resources on the internet dealing with journalism throughout the Americas, such as associations, fellowships, and relevant digital databases.
