Does pornography cause sexual violence?

Pornography…why this issue? Again? It’s a thought provoking topic as evidenced by the scholarly work done to investigate the effects of pornography on children and adults alike.

Questioning convergence

Larry Strelitz recently spoke to Reg Rumney, Head of the Centre for Economics Journalism in Africa at Rhodes University, about current trends in media convergence. They explored what is meant by the term ‘convergence’ as well as the underlying cultural, technological and economic drivers of the process. Rumney provided examples of the process in practice and also raised concerns that the need to train future journalists in the varied technologies of production may be diverting attention away from the importance of actual content.
