Lectures

Public

Speaker: Gavin MacFadyen, Director, Centre for Investigative Journalism

Please note - due to illness tonight's lecture has been cancelled. We will post details of the rescheduled lecture in due course.

Lecture preview:

The explosion of interest in WikiLeaks and Julian Assange is one of the biggest leaps on the Journalism timeline for decades.

It is a quiet story in which City University London played a part. But the tangled, garish public story is often painted by tabloid attacks, where Julian Assange is normally "monstered", but the engine of WikiLeaks, its social, economic and political consequences, its role in media exclusivity, in law and in personal conscience is rarely discussed or described.
