Institute of Communication Ethics Annual Conference

27 October 2017, Frontline Club, 13 Norfolk Place, London W2 1QJ

Keynote Speaker: Andy Cairns, Executive Editor, Sky Sports News

This year, we have an excellent selection of papers exploring a range of ethical issues in sports communications. They include the latest research by Professor Suzanne Franks on women in sports journalism, Jonathan Cable on the impact of clickbait in football reporting and Tracie Edmundson on the digital sports media landscape in Australian sport.

In addition, there will be papers on diversity in sports journalism and sports media relations. Simon McEnnis will discuss how the ethical codes of sports journalism intersect with a hyper-commercialised environment and Tom Bradshaw considers the ethics of self censorship in sport journalism.

Daragh Minogue will wrap up the conference by hosting a round table discussion with a panel of sports journalists. Join us for a day of lively academic debate and post ‘match’ drinks at the Frontline Club for what we think is the first academic conference in the UK dedicated to ethics in sports journalism.
