Event description

Description

The University of Newcastle is proud to host the annual conference of the Journalism Education and Research Association of Australia from 4-6 December, 2017.

The venue for the conference is UoN's new city campus - NeW Space. Newcastle is undergoing rapid transformation from industrial town to vibrant, contemporary Australian city. If you haven't been here in the past few years, you're in for a delightful surprise.

This year's conference will 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?

Don't forget to register for our pre-conference symposium on Sunday 3 December at 12 noon which will feature three valuable sessions: a master class on practice-based and practice-led journalism research for HDR/Honours students and supervisors; "Reporting Islam: Train the Trainer session"; and "How to make a podcast". Full descriptions can be found on the conference page of the JERAA website.

We are organising the conference dinner at Longworth House in the centre of Newcastle in one of Newcastle's most beautiful historic buildings. The night will cost $120.00 and covers a three-course meal, drinks, and entertainment. It is to be held on Tuesday 5 December from 7.00pm can be booked at the same time as registration.
