Bhaskar Sunkara: The future of radical journalism

Amid the closure of some traditional outlets and the fracturing of traditional boundaries between left and right, what is the future of radical journalism? How much can it borrow from the outrage-fuelled world of new media, and how far is it in danger of taking refuge in echo chambers of its own making? Bhaskar Sunkara, editor of Jacobin in New York, publisher of Tribune in London and author of The Socialist Manifesto: The Case for Radical politics in an Era of Extreme Inequality, came to the CIJ to discuss the opportunities and challenges for radical journalism.

Chair: Professor Angela Phillips, Goldsmiths, University of London.

This talk was hosted at Goldsmiths, University of London, as part of the #LOGANCIJ Talks Series.
