The Camden Conference and the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at Dartmouth are once again partnering to bring the livestream of the 2020 Conference to New Hampshire.

The 33rd annual Camden Conference topic is "The Media Revolution: Changing the World", and will take place February 21-23, 2020. The Conference will explore the role of the media in global affairs, focusing on how people in countries around the world get information, how governments and entities in the private sector filter and select what will appear in print or on the Internet, and how the quality and accuracy of information delivered to the public and decision-makers have consequences domestically and internationally. 2020 speakers include Indira Lakshmanan, James Nachtwey, and Claire Wardle.
