Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

This series of lectures discusses the fundamental role journalism plays in societies across the globe. It explores the historical development of journalism in the context of democratization, before discussing a number of theories that explore the relationship between journalism and society. Special attention is paid to four key societal fields that are of concern to journalism studies: the political, economic, cultural and technological fields. These areas are explored against the background of current events and developments in journalism, such as the relationship between journalism and populism, increasing economic influences on journalism, the rise of 'soft' journalism, and the challenge social media and web analytics pose to journalistic cultures.
