Informal Classes Lecture: Journalism is Dead! Long Live Journalism?

May 16, 2012
6:30 pm–8:30 pm

This free lecture details the state of modern journalism and what the industry’s future holds.

In this lecture, Dr. Robert Jensen from the UT School of Journalism will explain the two crises in modern journalism: A professional model that has failed to create a truly democratic news media, and a business model that is no longer viable in the digital age. How are the two crises related, and where can we find solutions? Jensen will guide you through the debate over the future of journalism.

The lecture will be followed by a question and answer session with Dr. Robert Jensen and a reception in the TCC lobby. Note: Although this is a free event and open to the public, registration is required.
