Emma Meese is developing and managing Cardiff University’s Centre for Community Journalism, a unique fusion of research and practice committed to developing a strong network of hyperlocal and community journalism in Wales. She is also running a series of short courses at Cardiff, giving everyone access to the highest standard of training in digital and social media. Emma also speaks at a number of conferences and events, including the Social Media Conference for Wales.
The Centre for Community Journalism aims to build on the new hyperlocal form of digital journalism and help create new, sustainable models of local news. The focus will be at the local level, the place where journalism is most valued – but most at risk.
Emma is interested in hyperlocal journalism and using social media as a newsgathering tool.
