The Editorial Department consists of 7 regional sections, the Anchor, and the copy team.
There are 7 regional sections in The Caravel: East Asia and Oceania, Eastern Europe and Central Asia, Latin America and the Caribbean, Middle East and North Africa, South and Southeast Asia, Sub-Saharan Africa, and Western Europe. Through a combination of news reporting and analysis, regional sections of The Caravel seek to make the news accessible and understandable to the average reader.
The Anchor publishes Georgetown students’ takes on international events, trends, and the international community on campus. The Anchor regularly features opinion pieces, professor interviews, and articles on global news underreported in the mainstream media. Creativity is key in this section, and we are always looking for new ways to cover international affairs and Georgetown-centric news.
The copy section will review articles to maintain grammatical, stylistic and factual correctness. The copy section is crucial in safeguarding The Caravel’s reputation for quality writing.
The Caravel Executive Team is responsible for handling the day-to-day business operations of The Caravel, as well as developing our long term business strategy. The Executive Team consists of five teams: Marketing, Research & Analytics, Finance, Business Development, and IT & Design. Teams are comprised of Team Leaders and Team Associates. More information about the different teams can be found within the application.
The Caravel Newsletter intends to convey a holistic report of the week’s most important news topics. It will provide the reader with trends and events to follow as well as give them some familiarity with each event. The Newsletter is designed to bridge the gap between politics, news reporting, and the media. Our goal is to facilitate engagement with underreported, international news while presenting it in a manner conducive to an active lifestyle.
Regional Specialists within these sections will produce succinct reports (50-75 words) that describe breaking news events in their respective regions as they occur. The time commitment will vary depending on the levels of breaking news. However, the formal Newsletter will be published weekly, and brief reports will be published on The Caravel’s social media pages as information becomes available. In the context of The Newsletter, they are intended to be comprehensive but condensed, answering key questions: Who? What? When? Where?
