Tony Harcup

What's the talk about?

Tony Harcup will draw on his experience as a journalist and as a journalism academic to explore the good, the bad and the ugly of news reporting. At a time when the traditional journalism industries are under existential threat, yet stories whiz around us all the time, his talk will focus on the enduring value of properly researched news.

Tony currently teaches journalism studies at the University of Sheffield and is the author of the Oxford Dictionary of Journalism. Before moving into higher education he worked as a staff and freelance journalist in both alternative and mainstream media, mostly in Yorkshire. His research interests include news values, alternative journalism and ethics, and his book Journalism: Principles and Practice has been translated into several languages including Chinese, Polish and Korean.
