Transformation of Journalism in the Digital Age
November 18, 2020 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
The Yale Globalist will co-host the webinar, "Transformation of Journalism in the Digital Age." New technologies allow new voices to reach broader audiences at lower costs. This has required journalists to adjust their production and distribution models and find new ways to keep their audiences engaged and informed. The internet has added numerous layers to the news reporting process. Journalists from traditional media organizations are no longer the only monitors of news and the number of independent journalists is growing, with various degrees of objectivity, accuracy and skill. In order to remain competitive, journalists must present instant access to the latest stories. They must prepare information for right now, instead of tomorrow. Does this emphasis on instantaneous news mean that journalists are less likely to ensure the accuracy of their content? May efficiency be traded for accuracy, meaning that information is subject to change? Speakers include: Lisa Armstrong is an award-winning journalist with credits in The New York Times, The Intercept, The Daily Beast, Rolling Stone, USA Today, The New Yorker, and several other publications and websites.She has reported from Sierra Leone, Kenya, and the Philippines. From 2010 to 2014, she also reported from Haiti through grants from The Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting and NYU. She is an associate professor at the CUNY Graduate School of Journalism. Mauro Mondello is a Yale World Fellow 2020, a freelance reporter, war correspondent, documentary filmmaker and the co-founder of Yanez, an online long-form journalism magazine. He has written for La Repubblica, Die Zeit, Sueddeutsche Zeitung, La Stampa, Avvenire and others. Often focusing on human rights and freedoms, his reporting strives to garner dignity and respect for all cultures and religions and to foster an open society that provides shelter for refugees and space for all humanity.
