Breaking News: The Remaking of Journalism and Why It Matters Now

Friday 07 September 2018, 17:00 - 19:00

Alan Rusbridger presents his powerful and profound study of the news - how we read it, who controls it and why it matters. Book here.

Alan Rusbridger, former Editor-in-Chief of The Guardian, will present the 35th Anniversary of the Reuters Journalist Fellowship Programme keynote lecture: "Breaking News: The Remaking of Journalism and Why It Matters Now".

Rusbridger, now Chairman of the Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism, will reflect on his twenty years editing The Guardian including his experiences of breaking some of the most significant news stories of our time. These include the Edward Snowden revelations, phone-hacking, Wikileaks and the Keep in the Ground campaign.

The lecture, based on Rusbridger's new book of the same name, promises to be an open, personal and agenda-setting account of how we arrived at the news world of today, as well as a stirring defence of why quality journalism matters now more than ever.

Dr David Levy, Director of the Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism, will introduce the lecture, which will be followed by a Q&A.

Registrations open at 17.00 and the keynote lecture will begin at 17.30 sharp.

Tickets are free, but please register in advance on Eventbrite and bring tickets to the event.
