LJMU’s Journalism Department has a long-standing relationship with Index on Censorship, initiated by Professor (now emeritus professor) Chris Frost around 20 years ago. The relationship has since strengthened with the establishment of the LJMU Tim Hetherington Fellowship in partnership with Index’s magazine and website, and has led to a series of teaching and employer engagement activities, including talks, guest lectures, and employability sessions.

Index on Censorship magazine covers a range of topics including media ethics, the social impact of journalism, the history of journalism censorship, and journalism and politics. The magazine can also be a resource for students producing research papers or dissertations on a range of journalistic themes, including propaganda/framing theory, journalism and society, journalism history, and the relationship between the press and politics.
