IN THE CONVERSATION: Politics, business and the life story of Jesus
Intended as a counterbalance to the proliferation of “news” sites with questionable credentials, The Conversation launched its Canadian edition in June 2017 with the motto “Academic rigour, journalistic flair.”
Concordia faculty members and researchers quickly responded to the online platform’s call for contributors to write short pieces on subjects related to their expertise.
Writing for The Conversation serves as a pathway to publication in leading news organizations worldwide, thanks to the site’s open-source design.
