The Future of Journalism
Mon, 26 Nov 2012 12:59:00 GMT
Does citizen journalism mark the end of serious journalism or the start of a brave new era? What has been the effect of 24-hour rolling news and the digital age? Will the Leveson Inquiry have any effect on standards in the industry?
These questions and more will be addressed at a special event to be held at the University of Huddersfield on 29 November. The Future of Journalism is a panel debate in front of an audience and it’s a must for anyone who works in the industry, for students studying on media courses and for anyone in the public who cares how our news is reported.
The not-for-profit event is presented by Key Words and the Huddersfield Creative Arts Network in collaboration with the Journalism and Media department at the University of Huddersfield, and the panellists are:
Tom Watson, MP, who took part in the Leveson Inquiry and is the co-author of Dial M for Murdoch: News Corporation and the Corruption of Britain.
Adam Christie, Vice President of the National Union of Journalists (NUJ)
Roy Wright, editor of the Huddersfield Examiner
Dawn-Maria France, Editor of Yorkshire Women’s Life magazine
Stephen Dorrill, Senior Lecturer in Journalism, University of Huddersfield
Asam Shah, Digital Journalist, The Next Web, BBC & Al Jazeera
Michelle Hodgson, a former Guardian journalist who runs copywriting, journalism and events company Key Words, joined HCAN last year as a volunteer. “We’re really excited about this event and the high quality of the panel,” she says. “We hope it will attract the support of students, those in journalism and the population at large.”
