On Thursday, January 25, 2018, from 6:30 to 8:00 p.m. the Freie Universität Berlin-Indiana University is hosting a panel discussion about the role of media in the digital age.
Traditional journalism and media outlets have been experiencing tumultuous times. Since internet and social media spread all over the planet, the parameters for public communication and journalism have changed dramatically. Our panel moderated by Anne Haeming featuring Alexander Görke and Margreth Lünenborg from FUB as well as Jim Shanahan and Elaine Monaghan from IU will discuss topics such as the new demands on journalism; the increasing polarization in the field; the relationship between social media and traditional mass media; new distribution methods and the positive effects of social media on journalism, amongst others. The audience will have the opportunity to engage in the discussion during the subsequent Q&A session.
The Freie Universität Berlin-Indiana University joint speaker series aims at bringing together scholars from both institutions to discuss current topics of global politics, stir scientific dialogue and research initiatives and trigger public debate.
