Gordon Campbell - Bruce Jesson Memorial Lecture

Bruce Jesson Memorial Lecture 2006

Hear Gordon Campbell

Former Listener journalist and columnist and currently a media adviser with the Green Party's Parliamentary wing

On Tuesday 21 November, 6.30pm at the Maidment Theatre (bar opens from 6 pm, please be seated by 6.20 pm)

Topic:

GETTING PERSONAL: the trends towards tabloidisation, personalisation, and commercialisation, and how they are shaping the ways that the media and politicians deal with each other.

The lecture traces the trends towards tabloidisation, personalisation, and commercialisation in the mainstream media in New Zealand, from the perspectives of someone who has been a former Gallery journalist and is a current media adviser.

The lecture will be using various media theories, film criticism, relationship counselling and the legacy of Bruce Jesson to try and explain why Gallery coverage and political spin has become increasingly non-linear and apparently trivial in a traditional policy sense. It will conclude by citing a few upcoming issues that will require activists to develop other avenues of political discourse than print and television, and speculates on how this might be done.

Free entry. Donations welcome. -- Professor Jane Kelsey School of Law University of Auckland J.kelsey@auckland.ac.nz

Those were the days, when the Team of Five Million felt like a real, organic thing... More>>
