Global Journalism Research: Theories, Methods, Findings, Futureby Martin Loffelholz
Synopses & Reviews
Global Journalism Research offers a diversity of theoretical and methodological approaches for studying journalists and journalism around the world. It charts the opportunities and challenges facing journalism research in an increasingly global field.
Global Journalism Research offers a wide variety of theoretical and methodological approaches for studying journalists and journalism around the world at a time when economic, political, and cultural forces are changing journalism dramatically. In addition, it presents a diverse range of journalism research from Asia, Africa, Europe, and North and Latin America.
As journalism has become a global phenomenon with global networks, journalism research can no longer operate within national or cultural borders. This book draws on a diverse range of global examples, including research from Asia, Africa, Western and Eastern Europe, and North and Latin America. In doing so, it builds an agenda that charts the opportunities and challenges facing journalism research in a globally interconnected field.
