Whether it's farms, food, fuel or labor, there are fields and fields of data to reap for data analysis and stories. Bring your lunch to hear about how the Midwest Center for Investigative Reporting is building its coverage through data.

Pam Dempsey, executive director of the Midwest Center for Investigative Reporting, will co-lead a team of data journalists and computer scientists who will develop a searchable, interactive database that will help journalists report on large multinational agribusiness companies and provide insights into the many ways these giant companies affect a community, a state and the world. Her co-leader will be Brant Houston, a professor and Knight Chair in Investigative Reporting at the University of Illinois.

The Midwest Center for Investigative Reporting 2017–2018 RJI Institutional Fellowship project consists of data journalists and computer scientists creating resources for journalists.
