America's community newspapers have entered an age of disruption. Towns and cities continue to need the journalism and advertising so essential to nurturing local identity and connection among citizens. But as the business of newspaper publishing collides with the digital revolution, and as technology redefines consumer habits and the very notion of community, how can newspapers survive and thrive? In Saving Community Journalism, veteran media executive Penelope Muse Abernathy draws on cutting-edge research and analysis to reveal pathways to transformation and long-term profitability. Offering practical guidance for editors and publishers, Abernathy shows how newspapers can build community online and identify new opportunities to generate revenue. Examining experiences at a wide variety of community papers--from a 7,000-circulation weekly in West Virginia to a 50,000-circulation daily in California and a 150,000-circulation Spanish-language weekly in the heart of Chicago--Saving Community Journalism is designed to help journalists and media-industry managers create and implement new strategies that will allow them to prosper in the twenty-first century. Abernathy's findings will interest everyone with a stake in the health and survival of local media.

The digital era has posed innumerable challenges to the business and practice of journalism. Journalism Re-examined sets out an institutional theoretical framework for exploring the journalistic institution in the digital age and analyses how it has responded to profound changes in its social and professional practices, norms, and values. Building their analysis around the concept of these changes as reorientations, the contributors present a number of case studies, with a particular emphasis on journalism in the Nordic countries. They explore not just straight news and investigative journalism, but also delve into lifestyle and documentary coverage, all with the aim of understanding the reorientations facing journalism and the ways they might present a sustainable future path

Living Ethics

Across Media Platforms

In a seamlessly wired world of television, computers, and BlackBerrys, where does ethics fit in? To address that question, Living Ethics calls for a moral convergence to complement the technological one. Identifying principles that apply across media platforms, Michael Bugeja has created a thorough and well-researched work that avoids the prescriptive language used by many texts; instead, he encourages critical thinking through examples that build, challenge, and enhance readers' value systems. While many ethics texts focus almost exclusively on journalistic ethics, this award-winning text (recipient of the 2009 Clifford G. Christians Award for Research in Media Ethics) emphasizes unifying principles that collapse and transcend the boundaries of a wide variety of media sources--including newspapers, magazines, radio, television, public relations, photojournalism, advertising, and other forms of traditional and online mass communication. As readers will discover, the circumstances of ethical issues may vary, but the moral processes used to resolve them are basically the same. Resolutely practical, Living Ethics is written in a clear and cogent style that helps readers: * Understand unifying principles from historical, philosophical, and political perspectives * Grasp the utility of principles that engage audiences and clients while respecting the diverse cultures in an increasingly global media environment * Explore moral convergence through the eyes of more than 100 practitioners at major newsrooms, agencies, and organizations * Examine ethical issues visually through more than 20 photos and illustrations * Develop a set of principles to guide their careers across a multitude of platforms

Komparative Theologie

interreligiöse Vergleiche als Weg der Religionstheologie

Author: Reinhold Bernhardt,Klaus von Stosch

Publisher: Theologischer Verlag Zürich

ISBN: 3290175189

Category: Religion

Page: 349

View: 5026

Komparative Theologie ist ein neuer Ansatz in der religionstheologischen Debatte und im deutschen Sprachraum noch nahezu unbekannt. Die Beziehung zwischen dem Christentum und anderen Religionen soll dabei nicht durch formale Raster bestimmt werden, sondern durch Vergleiche einzelner Vorstellungs- und Praxisformen. Ausgehend von ausgewählten Fallbeispielen wird in diesem Band die Tiefengrammatik von religiösen Überzeugungen komparativ herausgearbeitet, der neue Forschungsansatz vorgestellt und in Vergleichen zwischen christlichen, muslimischen und buddhistischen Traditionselementen erprobt. Dabei werden die philosophischen Grundlagen, die Anliegen und die bisherigen Leistungen der Komparativen Theologie deutlich. Ihre unterschiedlichen Ausprägungen kommen zur Darstellung, werden miteinander ins Gespräch gebracht und an Beispielen kritisch diskutiert. So wird eine spannende neue Perspektive in der Diskussion um eine theologische Beziehungsbestimmung des Christentums zu den nichtchristlichen Religionen eröffnet. Mit Beiträgen von J. Fredericks, N. Hintersteiner, M. Hüttenhoff, F. Körner, A. Middelbeck-Varwick, J. Mohn, R. Neville, Chr. Tietz, P. Valkenberg, K. Ward, U. Winkler, K. von Stosch.
