Monash University will host a public lecture by blogger and City University London’s Head of Journalism, Professor George Brock, on Thursday 31 May.

The lecture, ‘Beyond Leveson – The future of News International’ will discuss the inquiry into the News International phone hacking scandal, and ‘possible implications of this “cathartic moment” in the public life of the UK.’

Mr. Brock has previously worked as a writer and editor for The Times (of London) for 28 years, and before that for The Observer. He is the Chair of UK Press Institute and sits on the board of the World Editors Forum.

The event begins at 6pm at the Monash Conference Centre, 30 Collins Street, Melbourne on Thursday 31 May. Time will be dedicated to interviews following the lecture.
