UClan Goes Global With Digital News Forum

The University of Central Lancashire is bringing together reporters and digital news experts from around the world with its latest Journalism Leaders Forum.

Citizen journalism supporter and blogger Jay Rosen is among the guests lined up to join the panel for the event, which is entitled Local Turf Wars: Notes from the Digital News Frontline.

The New York University professor is a keen advocate of open source reporting programmes and played a key role in the launch of the experimental NewAssignment.Net website last year.

Among the other experts joining Rosen on the panel will be Emma Hemmingway from Nottingham Trent University and UClan alumnus Andy Mitten who created fanzine United We Stand at the age of 15.

The forum, which is taking place tomorrow evening, is open to all and will have a global reach through its live webcast offering.

Further details on the event are available at UClan’s journalism website and the Journalism Leaders Forum blog.
