The sixth biennial Future of Journalism Conference will be held at Cardiff University in September 2017.

The central theme of the 2017 event will be “Journalism in a post-truth age?”. A call for papers has been issued and whilst submissions can include the broader topics of journalism, authors are encouraged to focus on issues relating to the central theme.

These issues could include:

Challenges to the authority of legacy news institutions and the ideals of objectivity; The increasing role of social media in shaping news consumption; The emergence of “fake news”; and Watching the watchdog: Ensuring scrutiny, transparency and accountability of journalism in a “post-factual” era. 

The deadline for titles and abstracts is the 31 January 2017.
