Just like the news and newswork, journalism studies comes in increasingly varied forms and formats. Rather than trying to tame this tiger, the editors of this truly impressive Handbook succeed in setting scholars free - offering a glimpse of the many trees rather than focusing on the forest. The field will be so much better for it.
Here is a really useful book that helps us make sense of digital journalism in flux – how technology is disrupting the economy of traditional journalism, changing what ‘doing journalism’ means, redefining who gets to speak and listen, and yet leaving some things unchanged, all set within a wider conceptual framework that takes account of comparative difference and past theorising.
This gloriously eclectic compendium embraces the “messiness” of the digital world while celebrating the diverse and continually evolving nature of journalism within it. The superb group of leading journalism studies scholars assembled here raise enough intriguing issues to keep our intellects happily engaged for a long time to come.
This ambitious reference project enlists an international cast of academics for substantive entries (with bibliographies) on the protean issues posed by digital journalism. This reviewer found it interesting that the volume begins with politics, moves through changing business models to questions of practice and ethics, and concludes with a section on research strategies (the most important section is on big data analysis).
