About

Zoe Titus, formidable media freedoms defender across the African continent, will speak with Wallace Chuma, associate professor of media studies at the University of Cape Town, about her career trajetory from journalist to behind-the-scenes protector of media rights in Africa.

Through her work, Titus created deep partnerships in South Africa and globally committed to establishing and protecting press freedom, free expression and access to information rights – in Namibia, Southern African countries, and across the entire continent. In two decades, her vast contributions include (but are certainly not limited to) co-founding an online, open teaching platform on African media policy – the Jeanette Minnie Memorial Course in African Media Policy in the Digital Age – and contributing to the updating of 23 African countries' free information laws to reflect the digital age.
