Event Details
Event Name: What's Next? Journalism's Leading Questions
Category: Conferences/Workshops
Sub Categories: College of Liberal Arts
Description: Journalism is at a digital crossroads and a one-day conference on Jan. 29 at the Rochester Institute of Technology aims to examine the multitude of issues this raises.

Among the topics to be discussed will be: What will journalism and journalistic publishing look like in the Digital Age? How will journalists and photo-journalists and information technologists work together? How do we deal with "big data" and unified design across multiple platforms?

"We think humanity is in a situation similar to the 1500s, when print was becoming firmly established, but no one really knew all the changes which it would engender in society and all the forms it might take," says Dr. Andrea Hickerson, a Professor of Journalism, who is organizing the event with Jeff Sonstein of the Golisano College of Computing and Information Sciences. "We think now is the time to think about the right questions to ask about the future, and that no one really has answers quite yet," she says.

Speakers will include:
David Cay Johnson , Pulitzer-prize winning reporter at Reuters
David Hunke, former Publisher, USA Today; currently Chief Strategy Officer at Digerati
Dan Pacheco ,Chair in Journalism Innovation, and Sean Branagan, Director, Center for Digital Media Entrepreneurship, The Newhouse School, Syracuse University
Josh Stearns of Free Press
