Broadcast news institutions are responding in unprecedented ways to a public which increasingly produces and consumes its own journalism. The conference will explore the changing relationship between Broadcast News and Citizenship.  These trends challenge traditional notions of citizenship and the role of broadcasters. While enabling exploration of a broad range of topics related to these phenomena, we seek to develop insights, in particular, into how the major news broadcasters of the UK - at the local and national levels - adapt to an increasingly active, engaged, and demanding public.


The cost of the conference (including lunch and wine reception) is ?25. The reduced fee for students/unwaged is ?10.
