The Western Knight Center for Specialized Journalism is accepting applications from mid-career journalists from print, broadcast and This five-day seminar covered the acceleration of efforts by governments and corporate interests to censor and control the free flow of information on the Internet, with particular attention to the Internet situation in China where a convergence of dynamic development and growth exists side by side with well-evolved methods of control.



What fellows have to say about past seminars:
"The presenters, especially the demographers, were very impressive. The demographers all had great credentials and certainly delivered outstanding material. The sessions, I hope, will greatly improve the work that my colleagues and I will be able to do with future Census releases. I will strongly recommend for colleagues to apply to appropriate conferences in the future. The repeated emphasis on going beyond summary numbers to examine the underlying dynamic was valuable as a way to start thinking more deeply about stories coming from the numbers."
