The Stavros Niarchos Foundation (SNF) holds the third event of its new monthly series, DIALOGUES, entitled “Journalism in a time of Crisis and Crisis in Journalism”, on Thursday, January 18.

In an era of overabundance of information and sources, the challenges and opportunities facing modern journalism in Greece and the rest of the world will be the topic of discussion among scientists and representatives of the field at the 3rd DIALOGUES event entitled: “Journalism in a time of Crisis and Crisis in Journalism.”

Journalists Sofia Papaioannou, Aris Chatzistefanou and Kostas Zafeiropoulos will discuss whether investigative reporting still has its place in Greek media in relation to the past as well as to other countries. Associate Professor of the School of Journalism and Mass Communications of the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Nikos Panagiotou, will explain how contemporary trends in news consumption, given the omnipresence of the Internet, determine the future of the media. Valentinos Tzekas, student at the Department of Applied Informatics of the University of Macedonia will present an algorithm that attempts to assist with the detection of fake news.

Through the new series DIALOGUES, the SNF aspires to catalyze conversations around critical issues in today’s society.

The DIALOGUES will be live-streamed through the SNF’s website at SNF.org/live and will also be available on demand in both video and podcast format on the SNF’s website.
