About Me

This photo was taken for another Notre Dame student's photography project, where she tried to find and photograph every person named Emily on campus. Another Emily for her, a free headshot for me. Everyone wins.

My name is Emily McConville, and I am a senior at the University of Notre Dame majoring in history and Italian and minoring in journalism. Throughout college I have written for The Observer, Notre Dame’s campus newspaper. In the spring of 2015 I interned for the South Bend Tribune, and that summer I interned for the Tampa Bay Times in Florida. I spent the 2015-2016 school year in Rome, where I practiced photojournalism, coordinated a study-abroad blog for The Observer and intered at the U.S. Embassy to the Holy See. I am currently writing for the Notre Dame Alumni Association’s newsletter and writing a senior thesis on the political development of the Italian journalist Oriana Fallaci.

When I have spare time, I read literary nonfiction and non-literary fiction, listen to Italian hip hop, post snarky statuses on Facebook and try to sneak the Oxford comma past my editors. One day, I will convince the world that these are exciting.

I hope to go into journalism. If you’re wondering what kind of journalism – print or online, arts or business, features or breaking, international or local – I’ll have to get back to you. I’ve had great experiences with breaking news, but I’m still trying anything and everything to figure out what I do best and what I like best. In the meantime, I’ve provided some reading material for your wait. Please enjoy, don’t hesitate to leave comments or constructive criticism, and feel free to get in touch.
