Abstract:
The high tech revolution has significantly altered the way the public obtains its news and information, and has deprived the mass media of its traditional monopoly. The media and the practice of journalism, however, have been slow to adjust to the Internet and the global ramifications produced by the new information technology. While major media companies in the United States, Europe, and Asia have become multinational operators, their news product remains substantially unchanged. Journalists throughout the world still separate “domestic” from “foreign,” while their audiences casually chat between continents.

Among the topics to be explored are the global dimension of local news; how journalists write for a global audience; how “global news” can be gathered; the role of the Internet; the future of journalism; and the impact of the new media on the developing world. Participants will also consider how journalists use these new tools to advance their profession; what the security and ethical implications are in this new realm; and whether freedom of the press necessarily means freedom of access.
