Journalism Symposium To Examine Relationship Between Technology And Media

February 8, 2001-- Modern technology’s dizzying impact on the media will be explored during a journalism symposium at the University of Virginia.

The Feb. 16 panel discussion, "imMEDIAcy: The Influence of Technology on Media and Public Interest," will begin at 2 p.m. in Minor Hall Auditorium.

Four panelists, including representatives from NBC Nightly News and washingtonpost.com, will look at how dramatically increased communication speeds are reshaping the relationship between the media and its audience. Discussion will also touch on the effects of the Internet and continuous live television coverage on such events as the 2000 elections, the Elián Gonzalez case and the Columbine tragedy.

The event, sponsored by theangle.com, the media studies program and the Office of the Vice President for Student Affairs, is free and open to the public. Additional information is available at www.theangle.com/symposium2001.
