Periodismo y ciudadanía: Conferencia en Austin

Las nuevas tecnologías están borrando la línea divisoria entre periodistas profesionales y periodistas ciudadanos. La conferencia de dos días que mañana comienza en Austin (Texas), “Journalism and Citizenship: New Agendas”, propondrá nuevas avenidas de investigación sobre la relación entre periodismo y ciudadanía. Dan Gillmor, apóstol del periodismo participativo que esta misma semana visitaba Madrid para dar una charla sobre el mismo tema, ofrecerá el discurso de apertura.

A continuación reproducimos el contenido del programa:
