New Landscapes of Journalism — Innovations, Failures and Prospects
What will be the future of journalism? How will journalists engage the public? How will news organizations make money? For the first time in nearly a century, answers to these questions are unclear. We know enough, however, to know that the answers will be found online. Journalism, like all of mass media, is in the midst of a fitful transition to an online world. In this world, journalism is not the principal gatekeeper to public information. In this world, people are users as well as consumers of information. What will, can (and should) journalism be in this world? And how will answers to these questions be shaped by national contexts? This course engages these questions against the background of a broader history and comparative analysis of journalism. A major focus in these discussions will be on the advent of networks, social networks and networked journalism. Course offered by Department of Aesthetics and Communication.
