4/30: The Future of Journalism: Unpacking the Rhetoric

April 30, 2010 9:00 am to 5:15 pm

This event is free and open to the public, but seating is limited.

This conference is designed to challenge and dissect the fundamental assumptions and biases embedded within the media debate. The event will bring together journalists, lawyers, scholars, technologists, and policymakers to analyze and discuss the evolution of journalism into the digital age.

The conference will open with a speech by Amy Goodman from Democracy Now at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, April 29th.

The second day of the conference will consist of four panels, each addressing one of the tenets of conventional wisdom on the media. Panels will open with a talk supporting a specific principle. The panel members will then question, analyze, and debate the speaker’s thesis in an effort to introduce complexity and substance into the national dialogue about the future of journalism. Registration is required for this portion of the conference only.
