Three University of Adelaide Journalism major students were part of a 17-day study tour to the Middle East run by the Australia Middle East Journalism Exchange, with funding assistance provided by organisations including the Council for Australian-Arab Relations. Benito Carbone, Dale Carter and Ashleigh Roberts travelled to Qatar and Jordan as part of a cohort of six students from UoA and the University of Canberra. Highlights of the trip included a visit to the headquarters of media network Al Jazeera, the opportunity to meet fellow students in both countries and the chance to work on developing, researching, filming and writing their own journalism work based on their experiences.

Students from the Journalism major course Transforming Journalism were involved in a collaboration with PhD students from the University’s School of Public Health. The collaboration gave both groups of students the chance to develop their interviewing skills in either audio or video formats, with a focus on the research being undertaken by the PhD candidates. Pictured are some of the students involved.


The Department of Media with support from the School of Humanities, hosted students and staff from the College of Image Arts & Sciences, Ritsumeikan University, Kyoto for a special seminar on Japanese Popular Culture in September 2017. This successful international collaboration saw students and staff present their work on topics including film, media technologies, theatre, social media, tourism and music.
