- concepts and contexts e.g. the public sphere, the information society, etc.
- developments in the media e.g.convergence, the digital divide, etc.
- issues of the post-journalism era e.g. deprofessionalisation, civic participation, etc.
- digitization and newswork and newswork setting e.g. CAJ, online journalism, etc.
- the functions of Journalism e.g. democractic, deliberative, etc.
The papers take a deliberately international stance and use a wide range of case-studies and methodological positions.
