USC’s 11th Annual Convergence and Society Conference features two days of research and panels exploring the conference themes: Advancing Business Journalism and Convergence. The conference opens with an evening reception Wednesday, September 26, then features two full days of sessions September 27 and 28.

In addition to a full set of panels exploring the latest research, practices, and teaching issues related to convergent journalism, the conference features five sessions addressing business journalism. Keynote speaker Linda O’Bryon, co-creator of PBS’s Nightly Business Report and President of South Carolina ETV will address the increasing importance of business journalism. Other speakers addressing topics related to business journalism include UNC’s Chris Roush and Reynolds Business Professor Pam Luecke from Washington and Lee University. Veteran journalists Gabriella Stern, global news editor at Dow Jones/Wall Street Journal, and investigative reporter Mary Fricker will discuss lessons for students and educators after the 2008 financial crisis.
