EJTA Teachers’ Conference

Journalism in a Global Context: Connecting Africa and Europe in Journalism Education
October 17-18, 2019 in Dortmund

The Erich Brost Institute for International Journalism and the Institute of Journalism at TU Dortmund University, Germany, warmly invite you to the 2019 Teachers’ Conference of the European Journalism Training Association (EJTA)!

The conference aims at building bridges between journalism educators in Europe and Africa. Core issues at the conference will be an exchange about best practices and shortcomings in African and European journalism education, recent challenges to foreign coverage, and an intercultural exchange about the coverage of migration in and from Africa and Europe. In close partnership with the Africa Institute for Media, Migration and Development (AIMMAD) and the African Media Initiative (AMI), and thanks to generous funding from the Robert Bosch Stiftung, we will be able to invite 10-15 colleagues from African countries to the EJTA conference. Collaboration and cross-border activities in the field of international coverage, media research, and journalism education will thus be at the heart of the conference.
