Conference Venue

The venue for the 2018 JERAA conference is the majestic Hunter Street campus of the University of Tasmania’s School of Creative Arts, situated in the centre of Hobart’s historic and vibrant waterfront district.

Conference Theme

Journalism from the margins to the mainstream

We invite presentations examining and critiquing the way marginalized voices
are included and incorporated into the mainstream narrative. This includes new ways of seeing and storytelling; the possibility for inclusion in a divided world; and the interplaybetween regional and central seats of power within the mediascape.
We invite abstracts exploring, but not limited to, the following ideas:
The changing role of the mainstream media in the age of cultural and technological individualization

Journalism training: preparing the generalist or upskilling the specialist?

The place of objectivity, fairness and balance in a world of polemic journalism

The role of affect in reportage

Negotiating the future of journalism in the shadow of A.I.

Keynote Speakers:

Professor Stuart Allen
Head of the School of Journalism, Media and Cultural Studies (JOMEC) at Cardiff University

Professor Silvio Waisbord
Associate Director of the School of Media and Public Affairs at George Washington University
