The Second Coming of Journalism? Rebirth, resurrection, renewal, resistance, resurgence.
In a spirit of optimism, we would like to invite papers that explore, analyse and contest the idea of a resurging journalism and how that idea fits into the following themes:
- Truth in a post-truth world
- Fake news: opinions vs facts vs alternative facts
- Comedy and news: a marriage of convenience?
- Beyond the capitals: is the future of journalism in the regions?
- Advocacy journalism: collaboration for a community outcome
- How do we best prepare contemporary undergraduate and postgraduate students?
You are invited to submit a paper, abstract or panel proposal for inclusion in the 2017 JERAA conference. Papers, presentations and panels that reflect on the conference theme are encouraged but all submissions addressing journalism education and research will be considered.
Submissions are via EasyChair. You will need to set up an EasyChair account if you don't have one.
