Leverhulme Project Launch Event & Open Conference

Emerging Directions in News Use Research/- a day-long, international, virtual conference – aims to bring together a global group of scholars involved with researching news use, news audiences and consumption, and news engagement and disengagement. We are keen to hear from a range of empirical contexts, from projects using tried and tested as well as more creative and innovative methodologies, and to showcase the work of scholars across career stages in the fields of Sociology, Journalism, Media and Communication, and more.

About the conference: The conference will be held on Wednesday 20 March 2024, online, all day long. We aim to bring together a global group of scholars and showcase their work on researching news use, news audiences, news consumption, and news engagement and disengagement. To find out more about the conference and the Leverhulme News Use project, please go to https://www.surrey.ac.uk/research-projects/news-use-leverhulme
