New Skills for the Next Generation of Journalists


NEWSREEL Book Launch in Pécs!

We are pleased to announce that a NEWSREEL book has been published based on the research results of NEWSREEL & NEWSREEL2! The title of the volume is "New Skills for Journalists: Comparative perspectives from Europe" and it was issued by the Transylvanian Museum Society.

The researchers and lecturers who contributed to this book are from the Czech Republic, Germany, Hungary, Portugal, and Romania. The book's content is the result of their research, focusing on specific journalistic fields. Some of them are mainly related to technological developments (like data journalism or artificial intelligence and journalism), while others are connected to the social role of journalism (like ethical challenges of the digital public sphere or covering migration); these aspects are strongly intertwined in practice. The volume is recommended to everyone interested in the current trends of European journalism, but primarily to media and journalism students and lecturers.

The book will be launched in the framework of an event from 14:00 on 28th April, in the center of the Pécs Academic Committee, Hungary (PAB Székház - 7624 Pécs, Jurisics Miklós u. 44.) During the programme we will discuss the content of the volume and the main project results of the NEWSREEL2 project with some of the authors and invited journalist.

The programme will be in Hungarian, but the book was written in English and it is available HERE
