Guest lectures

Jon Snow of Channel 4 News giving a guest lecture

Our programme of guest lectures brings influential figures from the journalistic profession into the University on a weekly basis.

They represent a place where the academy welcomes key players from the media industries, and students who engage in journalism practice and study learn at first-hand about their preoccupations, concerns, and experiences. Those who report, present, manage, regulate or simply reflect on the rapidly changing media world give an insight into the industries our students aspire to join.

If you can't make it along but would like to take part, follow @sheffjournalism on Twitter. We live-tweet most guest lectures, and if you tweet us a question for the speaker, we'll try and ask it. Use hashtag #jusguest to keep up.


2018-19 Semester 1

Unless otherwise stated, lectures will take place at 12 noon in LT01, Sir Henry Stephenson Building, Mappin Street.

More guest lectures will appear here later as they are confirmed.
