Susan Forde

Susan Forde is Director of the Griffith Centre for Social and Cultural Research, and Professor of Journalism at Griffith University, Brisbane. She works in the fields of alternative and independent media and recently carried out a Visiting Scholar’s appointment at New York University to investigate public trust, transparency and the media. She is the author of Challenging the News: The Journalism of Alternative and Community Media (Palgrave Macmillan); and co-author of Developing Dialogues: Indigenous and Ethnic Community Broadcasting in Australia (Intellect). Her newest work, Journalism for Climate Crisis: Public Engagement, Media Alternatives co-authored with colleagues from Griffith University and Simon Fraser University (Canada) was published by Routledge in early 2017. It offers different models for journalism that might mobilise the public and enable the media to better report climate crisis. She worked as a journalist in the independent and alternative media before joining academia.
