Synopses & Reviews
Transnational and transborder journalism are in a unique position to address public discourses on European and regional border-transcending identities. A valuable resource for journalists, students, and scholars of international communication, Journalism across Borders explores how journalists in the border regions of Europe navigate different journalistic cultures and the lack of established routines. Drawing on dozens of interviews and newsroom observation, Kevin Grieves addresses an overlooked but important aspect of international journalism by examining how journalists carry out their daily work in the transnational and regional transborder context.
Journalistic activity crosses national borders in creative and sometimes unexpected ways. Individual journalists largely plot their own course, since transnational and transborder journalism offers few established guideposts. This type of reporting is in a unique position to address the public discourses on European and global identities. Drawing on many interviews and newsroom observation, this book addresses an overlooked but important aspect of international journalism by examining how journalists carry out their daily work at the transnational and regional transborder level.
