Journo & scholar collaboration [clear filter]
Saturday, May 20


Journalist-scholar collaborations: a model to pursue? / Round table
So much knowledge is held and such forceful methods are practiced by scholars. While traditionally journalists worked with scholars as their sources, and scholars worked with journalists as communication partners, recent years have brought more and more examples of genuine collaboration. This conference gathers some of these examples to see, what works and what is difficult. At this round table we'll consider opportunities and challenges, how can both groups collaborate without loosing independence and thus credibility, without compromising the quality of their work, which types of collaboration make sense and which do not.This round table brings together some of those working with collaborations between scholars and journalists. And this round table has the objective to answer two questions: Are the first examples so promising we should strive to develop this new collaborative approach further, and if so, how?
