The Routledge Companion to Digital Journalism Studies offers an unprecedented collection of essays addressing the key issues and debates shaping the field of Digital Journalism Studies today. Across the last decade, journalism has undergone many changes, which have driven scholars to reassess its most fundamental questions, and in the face of digital change, to ask again: ‘Who is a journalist?’ and ‘What is journalism?’. This companion explores a developing scholarly agenda committed to understanding digital journalism and brings together the work of key scholars seeking to address key theoretical concerns and solve unique methodological riddles. Compiled of 58 original essays from distinguished academics across the globe, this Companion draws together the work of those making sense of this fundamental reconceptualization of journalism, and assesses its impacts on journalism’s products, its practices, resources, and its relationship with audiences. It also outlines the challenge presented by studying digital journalism and, more importantly, offers a first set of answers. This collection is the very first of its kind to attempt to distinguish this emerging field as a unique area of academic inquiry. Through identifying its core questions and presenting its fundamental debates, this Companion sets the agenda for years to come in defining this new field of study as Digital Journalism Studies, making it an essential point of reference for students and scholars of journalism.

Release Date: 2014-01-09
Genre: Language Arts & Disciplines

​Das Bild von der verschwimmenden Grenze zwischen Kommunikator und Rezipient ist das Leitmotiv zur Charakterisierung der gewandelten Kommunikationsverhältnisse im Onlinezeitalter. Die akademische Trennung zwischen Journalismusforschung und Rezeptions- und Wirkungsforschung erschwert es, die damit verbundenen Entwicklungen und Phänomene adäquat zu beschreiben und zu analysieren. Dieser Band versammelt daher Beiträge, die sich mit den Schnittstellen zwischen Journalismusforschung und Rezeptions- und Wirkungsforschung auseinandersetzten und Theorien, Ansätze und Methoden aus beiden Feldern miteinander abgleichen. Im Mittelpunkt steht dabei die Frage, wie eine derart integrierende Perspektive dazu beitragen kann, die gewandelten gesellschaftlichen Kommunikationsverhältnisse theoretisch und empirisch in den Griff zu bekommen​.

The Routledge Handbook of Developments in Digital Journalism Studies

Author: Scott Eldridge II
Publisher: Routledge
ISBN: 9781351982085
Release Date: 2018-09-05
Genre: Social Science

The Routledge Handbook of Developments in Digital Journalism Studies offers a unique and authoritative collection of essays that report on and address the significant issues and focal debates shaping the innovative field of digital journalism studies. In the short time this field has grown, aspects of journalism have moved from the digital niche to the digital mainstay, and digital innovations have been ‘normalized’ into everyday journalistic practice. These cycles of disruption and normalization support this book’s central claim that we are witnessing the emergence of digital journalism studies as a discrete academic field. Essays bring together the research and reflections of internationally distinguished academics, journalists, teachers, and researchers to help make sense of a reconceptualized journalism and its effects on journalism’s products, processes, resources, and the relationship between journalists and their audiences. The handbook also discusses the complexities and challenges in studying digital journalism and shines light on previously unexplored areas of inquiry such as aspects of digital resistance, protest, and minority voices. The Routledge Handbook of Developments in Digital Journalism Studies is a carefully curated overview of the range of diverse but interrelated original research that is helping to define this emerging discipline. It will be of particular interest to undergraduate and postgraduate students studying digital, online, computational, and multimedia journalism.

Wer sich im Netz bewegt, muss mit Beobachtung rechnen. Mit immer geringerem Aufwand sind sowohl Regierungen, Wirtschaftsunternehmen, Meinungs- und Konsumforschung als auch Privatpersonen in der Lage, Netzaktivitäten und Datenspuren zu erfassen und zu analysieren. Der Band diskutiert diese Entwicklung in dreifacher Hinsicht: Im ersten Teil geht es um die Frage, welche Modelle der Mediennutzung in das Design von Verdatung- und Vermessungsverfahren eingehen. Beiträge im zweiten Teil diskutieren die Besonderheiten der Praxis der Vermessung und Verdatung. Der dritte Teil greift das Phänomen der Selbstverdatung auf.

Release Date: 2014-02-28
Genre: History

In what ways have social movements attracted the attention of the mass media since the sixties?

Communicative Figurations

Publisher: Springer
ISBN: 9783319655840
Release Date: 2017-11-27
Genre: Social Science

This open access volume assesses the influence of our changing media environment. Today, there is not one single medium that is the driving force of change. With the spread of various technical communication media such as mobile phones and internet platforms, we are confronted with a media manifold of deep mediatization. But how can we investigate its transformative capability? This book answers this question by taking a non-media-centric perspective, researching the various figurations of collectivities and organizations humans are involved in. The first part of the book outlines a fundamental understanding of the changing media environment of deep mediatization and its transformative capacity. The second part focuses on collectivities and movements: communities in the city, critical social movements, maker, online gaming groups and networked groups of young people. The third part moves institutions and organizations into the foreground, discussing the transformation of journalism, religion, politics, and education, whilst the fourth and final part is dedicated to methodologies and perspectives.

Theories of Journalism in a Digital Age

Author: Steen Steensen
Publisher: Routledge
ISBN: 9781134841356
Release Date: 2018-02-02
Genre: Social Science

Given the interdisciplinary nature of digital journalism studies and the increasingly blurred boundaries of journalism, there is a need within the field of journalism studies to widen the scope of theoretical perspectives and approaches. Theories of Journalism in a Digital Age discusses new avenues in theorising journalism, and reassesses established theories. Contributors to this volume describe fresh concepts such as de-differentiation, circulation, news networks, and spatiality to explain journalism in a digital age, and provide concepts which further theorise technology as a fundamental part of journalism, such as actants and materiality. Several chapters discuss the latitude of user positions in the digitalised domain of journalism, exploring maximal–minimal participation, routines–interpretation–agency, and mobility–cross-mediality–participation. Finally, the book provides theoretical tools with which to understand, in different social and cultural contexts, the evolving practices of journalism, including innovation, dispersed gatekeeping, and mediatized interdependency. The chapters in this book were originally published in special issues of Digital Journalism and Journalism Practice.

Comparing Political Journalism

ISBN: 9781317222545
Release Date: 2016-07-15
Genre: Social Science

Comparing Political Journalism is a systematic, in-depth study of the factors that shape and influence political news coverage today. Using techniques drawn from the growing field of comparative political communication, an international group of contributors analyse political news content drawn from newspapers, television news, and news websites from 16 countries, to assess what kinds of media systems are most conducive to producing quality journalism. Underpinned by key conceptual themes, such as the role that the media are expected to play in democracies and quality of coverage, this analysis highlights the fragile balance of news performance in relation to economic forces. A multitude of causal factors are explored to explain key features of contemporary political news coverage, such as Strategy and Game Framing, Negativity, Political Balance, Personalization, Hard and Soft News Comparing Political Journalism offers an unparalleled scope in assessing the implications for the ongoing transformation of Western media systems, and addresses core concepts of central importance to students and scholars of political communication world-wide.

Release Date: 2016-05-18
Genre: Language Arts & Disciplines

The production and consumption of news in the digital era is blurring the boundaries between professionals, citizens and activists. Actors producing information are multiplying, but still media companies hold central position. Journalism research faces important challenges to capture, examine, and understand the current news environment. The SAGE Handbook of Digital Journalism starts from the pressing need for a thorough and bold debate to redefine the assumptions of research in the changing field of journalism. The 38 chapters, written by a team of global experts, are organised into four key areas: Section A: Changing Contexts Section B: News Practices in the Digital Era Section C: Conceptualizations of Journalism Section D: Research Strategies By addressing both institutional and non-institutional news production and providing ample attention to the question ‘who is a journalist?’ and the changing practices of news audiences in the digital era, this Handbook shapes the field and defines the roadmap for the research challenges that scholars will face in the coming decades.

Audience Transformations

Author: Nico Carpentier
Publisher: Routledge
ISBN: 9781134064540
Release Date: 2013-07-31
Genre: Social Science

The concept of the audience is changing. In the twenty-first century there are novel configurations of user practices and technological capabilities that are altering the way we understand and trust media organizations and representations, how we participate in society, and how we construct our social relations. This book embeds these transformations in a societal, cultural, technological, ideological, economic and historical context, avoiding a naive privileging of technology as the main societal driving force, but also avoiding the media-centric reduction of society to the audiences that are situated within. Audience Transformations provides a platform for a nuanced and careful analysis of the main changes in European communicational practices, and their social, cultural and technological affordances.
