Angela Phillips teaches journalism and journalism studies and is active in journalism research.  She established the MA Journalism, MA Digital Journalism and initiated the joint honours BA Journalism in conjunction with the Department of Computing, as well as convening all other undergraduate journalism courses. In 2009 she  launched EastLondonLines.co.uk a local, multi-media, news website that is run by Goldsmiths students and has a significant local audience. She has been a journalist for over forty years, starting in the alternative and feminist press of the 1970s and moving on to work for national newspapers, magazines, television and radio (the BBC and independents). She trained initially as a photographer and worked for several years as a photojournalist before moving into print and online media with occassional forays into TV and radio. Her research interests cover: democracy and journalism, ethics, working practices, the changing audience for news and changing news consumption behaviour.  She works with the Goldsmiths Leverhulme Media Research Centre and is also the chair of the Ethics Committee of the Coordinating Committee for Media Reform. She gave evidence to the Leveson enquiry into the press.
