In 2018, the Nieman Foundation turns 80, and the anniversary approaches at a time when journalism is under unprecedented threat—and when the work of the free press is more vital than ever.
Join us at Harvard to discuss this historic moment with some of the brightest stars on campus; explore new ideas and innovations to strengthen journalism; and celebrate the work of extraordinary Niemans around the world who continue to “promote and elevate the standards of journalism.”
