Journalism beyond the crisis: Emerging forms, practices and uses

This project seeks to conduct a transnational comparative study designed to discover how journalism is changing as a cultural form, and the implications of this for political and cultural life. Journalistic culture in Australia is in transition, with significant implications for politics, culture and economic life. Change is affecting the forms of journalism available to Australian audiences; the ways journalism is produced and who produces it; and how journalistic content is used by practitioners and citizens.
