Event description

Description

The slow, careful art of soliciting a trustworthy source is one of the exciting and overlooked skills in the investigative journalist’s toolkit. But how does it work when the source can only be reached via digital means, or presents only an anonymous identity in the first place?

In this session, Investigative Practice examines how the traditional art of cultivating a source works where trust must be won remotely - and whether practices from the digital age can inform traditional methods.

Chair:

Stephen Grey, Reuters.

Panellists:

Gabriella Coleman, Anthropologist and author of Hacker, Hoaxer, Whistleblower, Spy: The Many Faces of Anonymous.

Ed Moloney, Irish journalist and writer of A Secret History of the IRA, Voices From the Grave and Paisley – From Demagogue To Democrat? and co-producer of the documentaries Voices from the Grave and I Dolores.
