The BA in English & Communications program in collaboration with MediaLab.am is hosting a public lecture led by Editors of the Guardian Judith Soal and Maeve Shearlaw. The speakers will focus on how the Guardian uses social media to find stories and build audiences. They will also present ways the Guardian covers the region and discuss civic/public investigative journalism that is important in countries like Armenia. The language of the event is English with simultaneous translation.
Maeve Shearlaw is the community and commissioning editor for the world networks desk, where she runs digital projects, works with partners and commissions stories to help increase the Guardian’s coverage of under-reported regions. Mostly, but not exclusively, the New East, Africa, North Korea and Iran.
