Register now for Journalism in the Time of Crisis, an international symposium to be hosted online this Oct. 22 – 23 by the Journalism program at Carleton University’s School of Journalism and Communication. Registration is free.


We will engage with a global network of experts to examine the nexus between journalism and the COVID-19 pandemic to find lessons for journalism practice and study in the future.

You can register for the event now using this Eventbrite site. Prior to the event, registrants will be directed to the Socio platform that will be used by participants to engage with the speakers and panel discussions. The symposium will be convened on the Socio platform to maximize the ability of registrants to engage with the experts during more than 20 panels and keynote presentations over two days. The online forum will also feature an international town hall for journalism students, and discussion of how journalism education can foster essential skills for crisis reporting among students and practicing journalists.

The symposium will explore the fascinating intersection of

journalism and the COVID-19 crisis to assess both short and long-term impacts. We will examine such issues as the role journalists have played during the pandemic, the impact of the crisis on journalism practice and business models, the future of local news, the ongoing contest between journalism and misinformation, threats to global media freedom, the impact in the global south and the implications for journalism education.
