Global journalism is dramatically changing as technological advances enable swift and vast information exchange. How do different political and cultural perspectives affect today’s news presentation? What are the implications for the future of the traditional and new social media?
The League of Women Voters of Connecticut has invited a distinguished panel of speakers to address these timely questions at its 43rd Symposium on International Relations, “Globalizing the Media: Where in the World is the Truth,” on Tuesday, May 15, from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at Sacred Heart University in Fairfield.
Nancy Ruther, associate director of the MacMillan Center for International and Area Studies of Yale University, will moderate the event, a collaboration of the league, Sacred Heart University and Yale University.
The panelists include Jane Bornemeier, New York Times; Nayan Chanda, The Yale Center for the Study of Globalization; Kazim Alam, correspondent from Pakistan; and Robert Palm, journalist, TV writer and producer.
To register online, or for more information, go to lwvct.org, or call Jean Rabinow, executive director, at 203-288-7996.
Costs for the May 15 symposium are $10 for students, and $25 for adults (at the door $30).
