July 9th, Media Circus: What's Next for J-School?

Media Circus returns to Brooklyn on July 9th with a night devoted to the future of journalism school.What is the role of a trade school in an era when everyone is a publisher? Gelf's monthly speaking series on all things media will examine J-school from the eyes of the people closest to it.

Jay Rosen, an NYU professor and renowned media blogger (interview here), will be joined by Stephen Shepard, Dean of the CUNY Graduate School of Journalism, and Chris Anderson, not that one, or that one, this one (interview here). The work of local artists will be on display, as well.

The event will be held Thursday, July 9, at 7:30 pm (doors open at 7:00 pm) at the JLA Studios art gallery on 63 Pearl St. in the DUMBO neighborhood of Brooklyn—just one subway stop away from Manhattan! Admission is FREE. Drinks will be available. Please spread the word and bring your friends.

I made a lot of friends [not] thanks to the fair-and-balanced chapter on the future of journalism schools in my recent book, The Big Picture.

I hope to make it to your meeting.

Wish I could be there. Will there be a rebroadcast or live coverage on the web?

I echo the question about live coverage or taping.

Either way, it would be great to have some kind of coordinated online coverage, even if just a CoverItLive blog to cover the speakers and pull in related tweets.

While there is no live feed, I imagine someone people may have the urge to twitter the event.

Plus, there will absolutely be full video from the event on this site in the coming week, so check back.
