Jobs After Journalism


Close to 3000 jobs have been lost from media newsrooms across Australia during the past five years. What happens next for journalists caught by this tidal wave of redundancies? It’s an international phenomenon but one that has played out differently from country to country.

In collaboration with La Trobe University’s ground-breaking New Beats research program, join us for a global forum over lunch with three leading researchers who have tracked the fate of redundant journalists in Brazil, South Africa and Finland.

Sérgio Spagnuolo is founder and editor of the data-driven news agency Volt Data Lab in Brazil. Glenda Daniels is an associate professor of media studies at Witwatersrand University in South Africa. And Ari Heinonen is a professor of journalism at the University of Tampere in Finland.
