About the Event:

In this lecture series, Professor Radcliffe will explore some of the biggest, and most important, issues facing the media and journalists in 2017. His talks will cover: Journalism and the media in the age of Trump, the impact of digital disruption on journalism and the business of media, and opportunities for an important (but often overlooked) media sector - local newspapers - in the digital era.
