VIDEO: Covering complex global issues and discussing new forms of publishing

Hanna Nikkanen, a Visiting Professor at the University of Tampere, talked with us about her plans for teaching and current interests.

We went through various interesting topics such as the future of journalism and skills required from future journalists. She also talked about the difficulty of covering global issues, such as climate change. In the last part Nikkanen raises important questions about new forms of publishing and about how these will affect journalistic content.

The interview was filmed in Jyväskylä in October 2016 after a guest lecture Nikkanen gave at the University of Jyväskylä.
