The digital age and the rise of social media have brought about a proliferation of news and information along with a diverse range of views and opinion. Some say new forms of media enhance democratic and civic participation, while others worry about ‘echo chambers’ and increasing political polarisation.

How significant is the social and moral responsibility of media authors? In the era of ‘fake news’ and social media journalism, how do we critically engage issues of media, morality and the quest for truth?

Join us for 'qNDA' on Media and Morality with our excellent guest panellists, as we explore the ethical and moral dimensions of media.
