Is “new media” controlling both the delivery systems of news, visuals and information and the content of what is being disseminated? Are social networking avenues molding the landscape of how we communicate with each other? Can traditional journalism maintain its voice even if it is being delivered in a mobile and personal way?
These are just some of the questions to be discussed by a stellar group of international experts, highly placed working journalists, award winning visual communicators and noted scholars at the second annual Schuneman Symposium on Photojournalism and New Media on April 8 at Ohio University’s Baker University Center. The focus of this year’s symposium is “Convergence, Confluence or Confusion: The Impact of New Media.”
