clip_image002

This Fellowship is awarded in honour of the late Professor Roger Silverstone, Head of the Department of Media and Communications. The Fellowship is attached to POLIS|, the forum for debate and research into international journalism and society in the Department.

In October 2006 LSE agreed an unprecedented contribution of £100,000 to the newly established Silverstone Fund|, which has helped to create the Silverstone Fellowship| in Global Journalism.

Charlie Beckett, director of POLIS, said: "Roger wanted POLIS to bring the highest quality of academic scrutiny to bear on the challenges that journalism faces in a world where the media has a critical role in helping people to understand the many threats to the global community. The Silverstone Fund will provide an annual opportunity for a journalist to apply for a major research fellowship looking at issues in international journalism and society."

The successful applicant will have a strong aptitude for high quality research and meet the criteria for 'excellence in Global Journalism'. The aim is to attract a foreign journalist based in London who will draw on his or her own expertise, supplemented by research and interviews, to produce a substantial report for POLIS. The Fellow will be expected to give an open lecture at LSE and contribute - where appropriate - to an option course in this Department and/or the POLIS Summer School.

Please send your CV and a 500 word proposal for the research you would conduct to: polis|, Assistant to the Director, POLIS.
