Emily Bell, the Humanitas Visiting Professor in Media 2015-16, will be in conversation with Professor Mary Beard (University of Cambridge). They will discuss issues on the theme of Facebook Eating the World.

At a time when new forms of communication, and in particular social media, are being used as tools for revolution and revolt, the Humanitas Chair in Media will address the intertwined issues of journalism, freedom and democracy in what is an increasingly digital age. Visiting Professors in the fields of social sciences and humanities will explore the impact of the internet and new technologies as well as new media’s relationship to more traditional forms.

The Humanitas Chair in Media has been made possible by the generous support of the Blavatnik Family Foundation.
