The third Australian Media Traditions conference, with the theme 'When Journalism Meets History', was held at the State Library of Victoria on the 13th and 14th of November 2003 and hosted by RMIT University's School of Applied Communication. The speakers on the opening night of the conference were Mitchell Stephens, professor of journalism and mass communication at NYU and author of 'A History of News' and 'the rise of the image the fall of the word'; Ken Inglis, one of Australia's best known historians who began writing about the local media scene for 'Nation' magazine in the 1950s; and Chris Masters, an award-winning investigative journalist with the ABC, best known for his work with 'Four Corners'. Eighteen of the refereed papers presented at the conference are published here.
