The Lincoln School of Journalism looks set to continue its great series of visiting speakers this academic year. The school has “an amazing list of visiting speakers for the coming term,” according to Professor Richard Keeble.
On the list this time is Air Vice-Marshall Andrew Vallance, the secretary of the government’s DA (“Defence Advisory”) Notice committee, a voluntary censorship system on national security matters. He will speak on Monday, October 26th.
Also coming to speak is Tom Bower, who won a libel case this summer brought by Richard Desmond, the owner of the Daily Express, who sued Mr Bower over allegations made against him in a biography of Conrad Black, the jailed former owned of the Telegraph newspapers.
Mihir Bose, a writer and journalist, and former sports editor at the BBC, will speak on November 16th.Previous guest speakers include Will Lewis, editor-in-chief of the Telegraph Media Group, Nick Davies, a Guardian journalist and author of Flat Earth News.
The lectures usually take place on Mondays at 6pm, in the Cargill lecture theatre. Full details and dates of this semester’s events will be available in the coming weeks on our website.Tweet
