The OxIMUN 2017 Press Corps will consist of representatives from a variety of global publications and media outlets. Working in the style of their assigned media organisation, members of Press Corps will report and offer comment on the proceedings of the conference; producing regular updates on developments in committees. Press Corps’ members have an unrivalled opportunity to be at the centre of OxIMUN 2017, with each individual within it being able to sample activities from a wide range of committees across the conference as a whole.
Meet your chairs
A warm welcome to OxIMUN 2017. My name is Navya Hebbar and I am looking forward to working with you in the Press Corps this year. I am currently a journalist training at the University of Sheffield. Originally from India, I’ve spent the past two year exploring different narratives in local communities while training with major media outlets such as the BBC, The Times of India, the Press Association and more compact ones like Exposed Mag, the Gay Times and Forge Press. I currently serve as head of TV news at Forge Media.
Media, narratives and global policies have been the cornerstones of all my undertakings so far, both within and outside of academics. So I can’t wait to see what the 2017 edition of OxiMUN has in store for us. You will each have an opportunity to understand the unique relationship that exists between the media, public relations and governance. While this might be demanding and tense, I hope you will find it challenging and exciting.
Please feel free to reach out if you have any concerns or questions. See you all in November!
