Overview

The School of Journalism, Media and Culture (JOMEC) at Cardiff University will host the eighth biennial Future of Journalism conference on 23-24 September 2021.

At present the conference will be virtual, in light of COVID-19 and social distancing. However, should conditions change, and time permitting, we envisage a blended conference, which will partly take place in JOMEC's state-of-the-art home in Cardiff's city centre. The theme for 2021 will be "Overcoming obstacles in journalism."

We are delighted that a selection of papers presented at the conference will be published in special issues of international peer-reviewed journals, such as: Journalism Practice, Digital Journalism and Journalism Studies.
