Emily Bell, the Humanitas Visiting Professor in Media 2015-16, will give an open lecture as part of a series of events she will be doing while in Cambridge on the theme of Facebook Eating the World.

A mobile media revolution is changing the basis of the global free press and dictating the future of self expression. Snapchat, Facebook, Twitter, Google and Apple are among the few companies redrawing the boundaries of how we communicate and taking over the role of the global publishers. The future of journalism, the news, free speech and even democratic exchange is changed forever. What does this mean for the news media and for democracy? Is this an exciting new opportunity to remake the news or a long term threat to the public sphere? This lecture examines the rapid changes in the news ecosystem and its implications for the practice and policies of the media industry.

This talk is part of the CRASSH series.
