On-line Journalism

Digitization presents many challenges to journalism, and also to understanding the context in which journalism takes place.

This volume brings together the perspectives of key researchers and scholars to consider the relationship between digitization, journalism production and journalism practice.

In a rapidly-changing environment, this book provides an accessible means of understanding the impact, process and terms of digitization. It examines:

- 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.

This book will be welcomed by readers seeking to understand the global digital process and journalism and those studying Journalism, Mass Communication, Cultural Studies and Sociology.
