The conference Digital Opportunities and Challenges: Researching Journalism and Media in a Digital Age is now accepting paper proposals. The event will take place on the 26th and 27th of January 2017 in Sheffield, United Kingdom.
The underlying theme to the conference is the constantly reshaping world of journalism. Modern technologies are changing the relationship between journalists and the audience, and journalism itself is changing in order to adapt to a new environment. Thus digital technology provides not only new opportunities, but also new challenges to journalism scholars.
Paper abstracts, of 300 words, are due on the 15th of July 2016.
Further information of the event is available at University of Sheffield’s website.
