A program of the Knight Center for Journalism in the Americas at The University of Texas at Austin and the Moody College of Communication’s School of Journalism and Media
The International Symposium on Online Journalism is an annual gathering of editors, producers, executives and academics from around the world who convene at the University of Texas at Austin to discuss the evolution of online journalism.
ISOJ started in 1999 as a small, but very intense one-day conference. It has grown throughout the years to become a unique international conference that serves as a barometer for the state of online journalism globally.
For the second time in its 22-year history, the International Symposium on Online Journalism will be online only in 2021. ISOJ Online will be held during the week of April 26 to 30, 2021.
The Bastiat Society of San Francisco will host journalist, documentary filmmaker, and former Royal Marine Emile Ghessen as he shares his experience and evolution from serving in the British military to journalism. Discover how he ventures to high-risk regions to cover the human side of events, such as the Middle East where he was on the frontlines against ISIS, Eastern Europe soon after the Russo-Ukrainian War, and the Republic of Artsakh during the mass bombing of civilians.
Emile provides the insight and coverage that governments and the mainstream media fail to report.
