Webinar Series on Cross-Media Journalisms in the digital age


The Erasmus+ Project PAgES “Post-Crisis Journalism in Post-Crisis Libya” is organising a series of webinars about journalism and its transformations in the digital age.

For four Mondays, from October 26th to December 7th 2020 at 10:00-12:00 CET, we will host open online lectures given by international leaders in the field, addressing some of the most relevant challenges to contemporary journalism, from both a professionals and audience perspectives. This initiative is part of the online training on “Cross-Media Journalism, A learning journey exploring journalism(s) in the digital age” developed by PAgES in order to contribute to the modernisation of the Higher Education (HE) sector in Libya through the design and pilot of a Master Course in Cross-Media Journalism.

We invite students and academics from the faculties of Journalism, Media and Communication, practitioners, journalists and anyone interested in learning more about the current transformations and trends in journalism practices and education, to join the online events and to participate in the conversation with the community of academics from the four Libyan universities participating in the project.
