The Conference program and a map of the venue are available at JERAA's 2016 Conference webpage.
The Conference will feature a keynote presentation on ‘The Panama Papers and the New Journalism Ecosphere’ by Four Corners’ reporter Marian Wilkinson and Australian Financial Review journalist Neil Chenoweth. Wilkinson and Chenoweth will discuss the nature and implications of the Panama Papers investigations that were led by the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists and which involved more than 400 journalists from media organisations around the world. The study of 11.5 million files, leaked from Panamanian law firm Mossack Fonseca, revealed the machinations of a shadowy financial system that allows public officials and other wealthy, famous or powerful people to shift capital to places where it can’t be found by governments and tax agencies.
The Conference will also feature the launch of new curriculum packages for journalism educators to use in tertiary-level courses, presentations of current research, JERAA's Annual General Meeting and presentation of the Ossie Awards for Excellence in Student Journalism.
There will be no cost to attend the keynote presentation or full Conference, but you will need to register.
For details and costs of the Conference dinner (6:30pm-late), please contact Angela Romano on firstname.lastname@example.org by 11 November 2016.
