News That’s Newer Than New

A two-day conference being held tomorrow and Saturday as part of the Melbourne Writers Festival is taking a look at the impact of digital technologies and culture on the business and practice of news. ‘New News’ is a program of events - most of them at the Wheeler Centre - that will explore a dazzling variety of topics and feature some of Australia’s most highly respected journalists and media commentators.

Topics will include political journalism (here and here), science writing, universities and journalism, innovation, spin, journalists and trauma, ‘democratic’ news, rural affairs and sub-editors, among others.
