Abstract:
In recent years, the news media have come to face an increasing number of social, political, technological, and economic pressures: the response of the media to the challenges and opportunities of the internet; the conduct of the media during war; the relationship between the media and government, especially in terms of national security; the evolving nature both of audience and advertisers both at the domestic and global levels. All of this affects the way news is reported and edited.

As part of the Seminar's ongoing series on the professional and ethical responsibilities of print, television, and digital media, this session will explore these issues in light of recent developments, focusing on individual cases that highlight issues of general concern. The Faculty and Fellows will explore the implications of these developments both for the practice of their profession as well as the impact on their audiences. Some of the issues to be explored will include the relationship between the British Broadcasting Corporation and the British government; the emergence of the satellite broadcaster, Al Jazeera, and the impact of its editorial policies both at the regional and global level; and the role of national newspapers and magazines within the context of an increasingly globalized news media.

The fee for this session is US$5,000 not including travel. The fee covers the cost of the program, accommodations, and meals.

Limited financial aid is available and is awarded based on need. Applicants who believe they qualify for assistance should explain their circumstances in a letter, which should be submitted with their application.
