Don’t miss the launch of the autumn edition of the Index on Censorship magazine, where there will be lively discussion around the question: Eyes Wide Shut? Will The Future of Journalism Mean We Are Any Better Informed? The discussion will tackle questions about whether changes within journalism will leave the public knowing more or less than they have in the past. Will new technologies bring us greater depth of information? Will news survive or will celebrity gossip take over? Will citizen journalism carry more weight than traditional TV channels?

The event will be chaired by columnist, author and Index chairman David Aaronovitch, and introduced by Index on Censorship magazine editor Rachael Jolley.

Speakers include:

  • Richard Sambrook: professor of journalism and director of the Centre for Journalism at Cardiff University and former director of global news at the BBC.
  • Raymond Joseph: data journalist and former regional editor of the South African Sunday Times.
  • Rachel Briggs: director of Hostage UK and deputy director of the Institute of Strategic Dialogue.
  • Amie Ferris-Rotman: John S. Knight Journalism Fellow at Stanford University and former senior correspondent for Reuters in Afghanistan.
