Two intersecting trends are bringing about significant changes in the journalism landscape.
What will these trends mean for the journalism of the future? Professor Lynn Schofield Clark discusses her forthcoming book Young People and theFuture of News, which includes new ethnographic research she and her collaborator Regina Marchi (Rutgers) have conducted on what young members of minority and migrant communities say about what they believe is right and wrong about the news that's available to them today, and what is needed for the future.
Journalism@RMIT presents this public lecture.
