Theories of Journalism in a Digital Age

Given the interdisciplinary nature of digital journalism studies and the increasingly blurred boundaries of journalism, there is a need within the field of journalism studies to widen the scope of theoretical perspectives and approaches. Theories of Journalism in a Digital Age discusses new avenues in theorising journalism, and reassesses established theories. Contributors to this volume describe fresh concepts such as de-differentiation, circulation, news networks, and spatiality to explain journalism in a digital age, and provide concepts which further theorise technology as a fundamental part of journalism, such as actants and materiality. Several chapters discuss the latitude of user positions in the digitalised domain of journalism, exploring maximal–minimal participation, routines–interpretation–agency, and mobility–cross-mediality–participation. Finally, the book provides theoretical tools with which to understand, in different social and cultural contexts, the evolving practices of journalism, including innovation, dispersed gatekeeping, and mediatized interdependency. The chapters in this book were originally published in special issues of Digital Journalism and Journalism Practice.

Durch den technologischen Wandel der letzten 15 Jahre haben sich Rezeptionsgewohnheiten wie auch journalistische Arbeitsweisen verändert. Das vorliegende Buch thematisiert diese Umbrüche für Österreich sowohl aus Sicht der Rezipientinnen und Rezipienten, wie auch aus Perspektive der Chefredaktionen. Ausgehend von feldtheoretischen Annahmen wird diskutiert, inwieweit tatsächlich ein Wandel der gesellschaftlichen Rolle von Journalismus zu beobachten ist, oder ob Veränderungen der journalistischen Praxis rein auf technologische und wirtschaftliche Entwicklungen zurückzuführen sind. In zwei Erhebungswellen wurden in den Jahren 2013 und 2015 801 Personen im Raum Salzburg zu ihren aktuellen Nutzungsgewohnheiten, ihrer Einstellung zum Journalismus und dessen Wandel im Rahmen mittels Face-to-Face-Surveys befragt. Ergebnisse dieser Studien zeigen, dass der internationale Trend zu Onlinenachrichten aufgrund von Kohorten-Effekten in den nächsten Jahren auch in Österreich zu tragen kommen wird. So sind aber weder jüngere noch ältere Nutzer wie Nutzerinnen bereit für Onlinenachrichten zu zahlen, alternative Einnahmequellen wie Advertorials werden kritisch gesehen. Dennoch ist das Vertrauen in klassische Medienanbieter hoch und die Rezipientinnen wünschen sich transparenten, kritischen und unabhängigen Informationsjournalismus. In Leitfadeninterviews stellen die befragten Chefredaktionen die aktuelle Situation als Herausforderung dar und geben in ihre Perspektive zum Wandlungsprozess preis. Zunehmend auftretende Finanzierungslücken sollen über thematischen Nischen, das Errichten von Pay-Walls und das Aufkommen von Nebengeschäften, abseits des klassischen Journalismus geschlossen werden. Dabei ist in der Selbstwahrnehmung der Medienanbieter und -anbieterinnen die Aufgabe des Journalismus unverändert. Sie möchten als unabhängige Berichterstatter und -statterinnen auftreten, obwohl wirtschaftliche Instabilität und Einflussversuche durch Wirtschaft und Politik dies gefährden. Zudem werden das schlechte Image des Berufsstands, sowie die Belastung durch neue Aufgaben als Problemfelder thematisiert. Während bei Rezipientinnen als auch Produzentinnen ein deckendes Problembewusstsein vorhanden ist, zeichnet sich aufgrund von sinkender Zahlungsbereitschaft und steigender Skepsis gegenüber traditionellen Medienangeboten ein negativer Trend ab. Dieser könnte langfristig zur Erosion des Printzeitungsmarkts führen, wie es bereits in anderen Ländern zu beobachten ist.

How do journalists around the world view their roles and responsibilities in society? Based on a landmark study that has collected data from more than 27,500 journalists in 67 countries, Worlds of Journalism offers a groundbreaking analysis of the different ways journalists perceive their duties, their relationship to society and government, and the nature and meaning of their work. Challenging assumptions of a universal definition or concept of journalism, the book maps a world populated by a rich diversity of journalistic cultures. Organized around a series of key questions on topics such as editorial autonomy, journalistic ethics, trust in social institutions, and changes in the profession, it details how the practice of journalism differs across the world in a range of political, social, and economic contexts. The book covers how journalism as an institution is created and re-created by journalists and how they experience their profession in very different ways, even as they retain a commitment to some basic, widely shared professional norms and practices. It concludes with a global classification of journalistic cultures that reflects the breadth of worldviews and orientations found in disparate countries and regions. Worlds of Journalism offers an ambitious, comparative global understanding of the state of journalism in a time when it is confronting a series of economic and political threats.

Journalismus. Macht. Wirklichkeit

Wozu Journalismus dient. Woran er krankt. Und was er mit der Politik zu tun hat.

Journalismus – wozu? Das fragt sich so mancher in einer Zeit, in der jedermann in den sozialen Medien und auf seinem Blog selbst Journalist spielen kann. Andreas Koller meint: Gerade in einer solchen Zeit ist professioneller, recherchierender, analysierender Journalismus wichtiger denn je. Nur Profijournalisten können den Informationsüberfluss, der täglich aus allen Kanälen auf die Menschheit schwappt, nach objektivierbaren Kriterien filtern, inhaltlich einordnen, kurz gesagt: Informationsmüll von tatsächlichen Informationen unterscheiden.Die Sache hat allerdings einen Haken: Dieser Journalismus kostet Geld. Und es wird immer schwieriger, ihn zu finanzieren. Sind neue journalistische Geschäftsmodelle vorstellbar? Wenn nein: Was passiert dann mit unserer Demokratie? Wenn ja: Wo sind die Grenzen des recherchierenden Journalismus? Ist jede Wahrheit um jeden Preis zumutbar? Welche Rolle spielt die Politik – und soll sie überhaupt eine Rolle spielen?

What is Russia? Who are Russians? What is 'Russianness'? The question of national identity has long been a vexed one in Russia, and is particularly pertinent in the post-Soviet period. For a thousand years these questions have been central to the work of Russian writers, artists, musicians, film-makers, critics, politicians and philosophers. Questions of national self-identity permeate Russian cultural self-expression. This wide-ranging study, designed for students of Russian literature, culture, and history, explores aspects of national identity in Russian culture from medieval times to the present day. Written by an international team of scholars, the volume offers an accessible overview and a broad, multi-faceted introductory account of this central feature of Russian cultural history. The book is comprehensive and concise; it combines general surveys with a wide range of specific examples to convey the rich texture of Russian cultural expression over the past thousand years.

This book is a comprehensive introduction to media ethics and an exploration of how it must change to adapt to today's media revolution. Using an ethical framework for the new 'mixed media' ethics – taking in the global, interactive media produced by both citizens and professionals – Stephen J. A. Ward discusses the ethical issues which occur in both mainstream and non-mainstream media, from newspapers and broadcast to social media users and bloggers. He re-defines traditional conceptions of journalistic truth-seeking, objectivity and minimizing harm, and examines the responsible use of images in an image-saturated public sphere. He also draws the contours of a future media ethics for the 'new mainstream media' and puts forward cosmopolitan principles for a global media ethics. His book will be invaluable for all students of media and for others who are interested in media ethics.
