Research featured at leading academic conferences

Research on journalism startups in Canada, gender and explanatory journalism, and the role of universities in journalism are among the topics being presented by team scholars at leading Canadian and international conferences in May.

The Global Journalism Innovation Lab researchers are sharing their findings at the Canadian Communication Association annual conference taking place online between May 17-20. They are also hosting a panel discussion on the increasingly blurred lines between scholarly research and journalistic reporting.

A week later, researchers are presenting at the annual conference of the International Communication Association, taking place in Paris, France, between May 26-30. They are also hosting a panel on the contribution of startups to the infrastructures of journalism.
