The Future of Journalism Conference 2013:
In an age of digital media and economic uncertainty
September 12 and 13
Following the success of the conferences in 2007, 2009 and 2011, we are delighted to announce that the fourth in this series of biennial research-based conferences - to be hosted by the Cardiff School of Journalism, Media and Cultural Studies (JOMEC) and sponsored by Routledge Taylor and Francis - will focus on the topic: The Future of Journalism: In an age of digital media and economic uncertainty.
This year's conference will be a research conference. Places are only available for those whose papers have been accepted for presentation at the conference. This means that - with regret - we are unable to offer places to anyone else.
This year's plenary speaker will be Professor Robert G. Picard
Robert Picard is a distinguished and world-leading specialist on media economics and Director of Research at The Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism, University of Oxford, UK.
He is the author and editor of more than 20 books including Media Clusters: Spatial Agglomeration and Content Capabilities (2011); and Value Creation and the Future of News Organisations: Why and How Journalism must Change to Remain Relevant in the Twenty–First Century (2010). He is the editor of The Journal of Media Business Studies and the founding editor of The Journal of Media Economics.
The subject of his lecture will be: Funding the Future of Journalism.
