Panel Discussion: Upheaval – Disrupted Lives in Journalism

Classes, Lessons, Workshops and Talks

23 Jun 2022 Once Only Event

At this panel discussion led by Matthew Ricketson and featuring representatives from the media, hear from journalists on the changes in the media and unpack the experiences of those shared in ‘Upheaval’.

The book captures unique insider perspectives on the transitions underway in journalism. It includes material from interviews with 57 journalists who, with one exception, experienced redundancy between 2012 and 2016. These whole-of-life interviews were recorded in association with the National Library and cover regional, rural and metropolitan journalists.

Copies of the book can be purchased on the night from the National Library Bookshop. Following the discussion in the Theatre, Matthew Ricketson will be available for book signing in the Foyer.

This event is free to attend but bookings are essential. Bookplate cafe will remain open on the evening until the event starts at 6pm.

For those unable to make it to Canberra for the panel discussion, it will be livestreamed online via the Library’s Facebook page. No bookings are required to watch the online stream.
