Looking ahead: What future for critics in the digital age?
Sun 23 October 2016, 13:00 – 14:00 BST
In the last 15 years over a third of Scots have stopped reading printed daily newspapers. Many journalists have lost their jobs and at a time when we have never needed criticism more, critics are losing their voice. But not all is doom and gloom – new platforms are emerging and the print that remains is strong. Chaired by Alan Taylor, Editor of the Scottish Review of Books, authors and critics Rosemary Goring (Dacre’s War), Kapka Kassabova (Street Without a Name) and Malachy Tallack (60 Degrees North) will reflect upon a future for critics in our digital age: what is the changing role of criticism in the age of the internet?
